Bat Beach or Playa El Murcielago Sep 10, 2009
Manta is located on the coast, so going to the beach is a MUST! The best beach to visit is this one: El Murcielago (which means Bat).
The Malecon is just next to it and you'll find several restaurants and bars, but also a handi craft mini market, public restrooms among other services.
If you don't have an umbrella or chair, do not worry. There are chairs and umbrellas to rent. There are also vendors, so you can have a snack and/or beer while you are enjoying your beach day.
Ok, just be aware that sand is not that white and it can be a bit windy, which is good since it allows the kite surf, but not that good if you just want to get tan. Nevertheless the water is warm and nice.
Beach isn't crowded during the weekdays, just on the weekends.
So good a city has a beach so close, where you can get disconnected from the noisy daily life although you are just some meters away.
