Pristine Beach is anything but pristine. There are a ton of people here, it's dirty, and the water isn't clean. The plastic in the ocean often washes up here, and is no doubt not helped by all the crap already on the beach.

Beach is good. Prices are ok. But the tricycle is charging 2-way. Management should do something on this. As tourist opinion Pristine should put also approved price list for these transpo.

Whoever called this beach pristine, must have been beginner in English not knowing the meaning of the word pristine. The beach is full of plastic trash, the water is brown and stinky and the place is difficult to access after rain. Not to mention that...More

Pay to come to what looks like a landfill! Don't wait your time. You get better use of your money when you run out of toilet paper, at least you clean something :)

Definitely not pristine - trash everywhere on the beach, in the water and hidden in the mangroves. Disgusting. And they dare put up signs about being clean and eco-friendly. We didn't even want to be on the beach, we were there to check a boat...More
