Its nice to walk there and drink coconut water.

CLose to there there is a few options for food. Just don't show of too much your cellphone. You can get stolen. But its ok.

While this appears to be a safe place during the day, by late afternoon not so much. We met a girl who had just been attacked on the beach and it was only about 5 pm. There are better places to go.

There is absolutly no Security on this beach and tourist are more or less bound to be robbed by the gangs that stay around the restaurant area. Stay away, there are other beaches that are better and more secure.

Nice beach for sunset and pictures of reggae night venue, but very very dangerous. Watchout!
