Room for all on this beach

Quiet in the week, busy at weekends. When the wind's blowing, it's fun time for the kite and wind surfers.

Went for a day on this most wonderful white sand beach! Crystal clear waters. It does get windy this side of the island but it's very refreshing in the heat.

It's not as pristine as the pictures, it has no facilities and covered in seaweed. It would be great for someone to harvest and sale the seaweed. Right now you have easy parking, locals swimming and fishing (mainly on week end). They do kite surf, but not while I was there.

minus the seaweed on the beach, it was nice, windy enough that you can tan and cool off. the wave is nice enough that you can still swim in the water, clean and clear!

Good spot for kitesurfing, launch area safe, parking can be small on busy days, not toilet or shower. No shore break on east side, small reef. Kite school present on windy days. Kite school staff a bit cold, some did not bother to say hi or turn around to see who arrived, strange for a kitesurfng school. Some other staff... More

We got dropped off by a local bus and expected to see a nice beach with a few nearby attractions. There was neither. Other than a small restaurant and convenience store across the road, there's nothing there. The beach itself was deserted.
