The 3 km long beach extends from the mouth of the Oro River in the west, to the cliffs of Point Caramonal to the southeast. It is of grayish sand and has moderate to strong waves. It is apt for fishing and camping.

The view from the large beach includes hills of vocanic origin covered with lush vegetation composed of madero negro, gumbo-limbo, wild plum, bastard cedar, stinking toe, spiny cedar, yellow cortez, gonzalo alves, red berry, terciopelo, mahogany, espave, canelo, balsa wood and white cotton.

Besides the beaches, which are used by the leatherback and Pacific ridley turtles to lay their eggs mainly during the green season, other points of interest are the mouth of the River Ora. There are camping sites and the Camaronal Quebrada estuary, which has fresh water even well into the dry season, and Vuelta del Sur Beach, which is on the other side of the mouth of the Ora and accessible at low tide. A large number of crabs, shore limpets, nerites, snails, flatworms, chitons, and other marine creatures can bee seen there.
