Less crowded than its sibling, Dominicalito's unrivaled in its scenic beauty with rocky points and tide pools stripped bare from years of erosion mar the northern and southern points of the beach. In between, the beach is littered with different stones, some as small as pebbles other smooth, round cobblestones while shady wild almonds reach over the beach for sunlight.

The beach is finely worn comb of mostly underwater rock formations off the coast that protect the beach from the strong swell that often smash against neighboring Dominical. Luckily, the rocks are far enough away, that it won't interrupt the surfing, though there are some cobblestones at the tide line you'll want to watch out for if you're riding in. During high tide, there's a special point break known as a favorite local spot.
