Surrounded by palm trees and sheltered from the wind, Playa Cavancha is lapped by mild seawater suitable for swimming throughout the year, while its big waves provide opportunities for water sports. Play volleyball on the white sand, hop on a surfboard, or put on water skies and ride the waves. The area also boasts an aquarium and a pool hosting sea lion shows. Busy and popular with locals and tourists alike, the beach sits in the middle of a modern residential area with a coastal avenue and a public walkway.

Clean, warm water. Handicapped accessible. Showers.
I would give it the five stars if it wasn't for the bird's poop that expell a disgusting smell. Despite that you can find places to eat, to sit, to play sports such beach tennis, beach soccer, beach volley and so on. There is a little zoo, the casino is also there and just across the street you can find some restaurants more settled. It's a swimmable beach so daily you'll see body swimmers, surfers, swimmers and such. Nice place to spend the morning or the evening. It's hot on sunny days so watch out.
