Aquamarina Beach, also known as Dorado beach, is popular with Scandinavians snowbird tourists staying at nearby hotels like the Radisson Blu and Montemarina. While it's in a touristy area, this little scrap of sand is rarely crowded.
The beach itself is about 30 metres long and split in two with half the sand up on a terrace. The lower bit needs some fresh sand as it's a bit muddy these days.
Swimming from the beach is a pain as the water is shallow and the bottom muddy. It's best to get into the water from the platforms along the sides of the channel in front of the beach.
Aquamarina's sunbathing platforms, with steps down into the water, are the best thing about the beach. Local kids use the big one on the ocean side to jump into the water while the small ones by the promenade are popular with tourists staying in the area.
There are no public toilets in the area; most people use the bar or their hotel facilities. You get a choice of two restaurants with views of the sand.
