As an avid beach goer, I truly enjoyed this beach. A 30 min or so cab ride from the port takes you to this somewhat secluded beach. Cab ride was about 30 dollars round trip. Beach sits on a cove. Nice soft sand with calm waters - perfect for families with small children. Water is pretty clear. A few rocks right after the shoreline but the rocks disappear after about 5 feet or so. Soon after, you find awesome sand underneath your toes. I typically hate beaches with rocks because you have to play dodgeball and not get hit with them. In this case, rocks were concentrated at the entrance. Once I swam out, they were all gone. Hotel rents out the chairs for about 10 dollars each. Just make sure they know that you want to order drinks and food as this may give you priority. We went during low season so we found chairs fairly easy. I'm assuming that high season can get quite busy so make a reservation for lunch. French cuisine on site is amazingly good. Our frozen mojitos ran at about 10.00 dollars each. I ordered a fish plate which ran about 23.00 dollars. Kids had chicken fingers which were about 12.00 dollars. Overall, great beach destination for a day or a few.

It's a little corner of paradise ❤
To my opinion, if paradise existed this woukd be it! Great beach, it's like you're part of a postal card... beach service is good, waiters are not pushy and patient.
The food is a bit expensive for those who are not paid in euros, but we were satisfied with the portions, freshness and quality of food.

We came here today and left immediately. The water was not clear and there was algae. The beach chair rentals were expensive at $40 per set per day
