Beautiful beach. The water is a beautiful blue color and it is clear. Had fun snorkeling. Not crowded.

The beach was nice with soft sand. There is lots of seaweed and rocks so take water shoes if you have them. While there were lots of vendors on the beach they didn’t harass us. Once we said no they moved on

For some reason there was a lot of seaweed when we where there. Maybe it’s seasonal, but there are a lot of locals trying to sell you junk on the beach which gets annoying after the 400th time. Other than that it’s decent.

the public beach is a great place to enjoy the surf and sun and also find a great meal and drinks, with the many offering all along the beach.

This is a great little beach. We were on a private section but to either side of us was public access. The beach is soft sand but wearing water shoes would be good. There are lots of small shells and rocks in the water itself...More

Poor beach (weeds, dangerous old Coral reef near shore, brown water, boring small waves). Two star beach. Hassles from sellers.
