Whoever said that Playa Estrellas is a paradise on earth must have never left their backyard. It's just another overrated beach that is only marginally better than the Matahambre Mines. Sure, it's accessible by foot, but it's not like you'll be skipping there in a jolly mood. It takes a good half an hour of trudging through sand and sweat to reach this mediocre beach from Playa Jutias. Save yourself the trouble and find a better spot to soak up the sun.

Accessible by a paid boat ride from Cayo Jutias beach, or alternatively, by following the road on foot which eventually transforms into a picturesque path along the shoreline that will always be on your right-hand side. After walking for about an hour, you'll stumble upon a deserted white sand beach with crystal clear turquoise water. You might even come across some local fishermen casting their nets. Keep walking and you'll eventually arrive at the renowned shoal of starfish.

This stunning location is situated at the very edge of the land, where the winds can be quite strong, so it's wise to exercise caution. Here, you'll be greeted by the sight of crystal-clear turquoise waters and pristine white sandy beaches. As you explore the area, you'll come across clusters of fishing nets, adding to the charm of the place. To access this hidden gem, you can either take a boat or venture through the lush forest. If you choose the latter, you'll discover secluded spots where you can take a dip and find shelter from the winds.
