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.

You have to go and see it just to witness it. So sad- people sunbathing amongst human rubbish. Sorry but Pristine beach did not live up to its name. I had no desire to stay and swim.

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

Muddy, dirty, smelly and inaccessible. To get there you had to cross the jungle. Definitely overrated
