“Well it's in the name so it must be a place to watch the sunset! Make sure to arrive early if you want a good spot, this place is a bit small but really chill and there's often a DJ playing. A few spanish guys on this joint so its all about the tapas as far as their food goes!”

“Great beach just 20 minutes pass Nacpan. Rent a scooter and head up there for the day, great place to chill, sun tan, get away from the crowds. Check out the little resort on the end with white cabins. Say hi to the owners Max and Alma and their 2 little boys and have some lunch there. They've got games, volley ball, hammocks.. ”
