Unspoilt, uncrowded with good facilities, justifying blue flag. Access is fun and very frequent (every 5 to 10 minutes) water taxis. 3-4 minute trip for a couple of eros return.

There is a restaurant on the beach near the loungers, further along from where the free boat from Goldens Cabanas Hotel drops you off. But I wouldn't bother going as the staff were rude!!

Just goes on for miles, take you own brolly and walk along to a quiet area, lovely. Best to take drink and food if staying for the day.

This is a fabulous beach and when we went it was quiet too which made it all the nicer It's a white beach and the sand was lovely No pebbles to hurt your feet getting into the sea either

This beach does get busy but if you walk a little you are left with a beautiful beach with no crowds. Access to the beach is via ferry/water taxi which takes a couple of minutes and very easy at reasonable cost.

Lovley beach, cheap boat ride to get there, take a picnic and your own brolly or shade tent for economy

The beach was large and clean. There are concession areas which have more space. There were lots of people there but still enough room for everyone.

This is a lovely beach. The cheap water taxi over to it makes it even more appealing. Our grand kids loved it. The only downside is that there is only one place for lunch the menu is not great & is expensive so really need...More

So fun, getting the boat there! Lovely clean beach, decent facilities. No queuing for a return boat too.
