It is a small beach of 700 mts. protected by hills and cliffs af sedimentary metamorphic rocks of 80 million years of age. Its clear sands mix with sarce rock formations and the dry forests of the hills. 


Together with Cirial Point to the west and La Flor Peak to the north, it is a site of outstanding scenic beauty where the shimmering sands are dotted with mounds of rocks, the hills covered with tropical dry forest and the jagged coastline forever battered by the pounding surf.

The advantage of Ocotal is that this idyllic beach combines this kind of energy with hours and hours of brilliant sunshine, a mild climate and the warm inviting waters of the blue sea.
