This was one of the most amazing beaches we've been at. Beautiful white sand, warm ocean, nice bars and restaurants, wonderful vegetation and interesting fauna. Probably one of the best places in the world to relax!

It is hard to consider the impact of the Tsunami on this area when you see a beach this beautiful. There are some remnants - boats thrown up beyond the beach, but you wouldn't know. I was there midday, on Independence day, and it was...More

Stayed an afternoon at the beach. It id nice and clean with fine sand. The waves can be a bit rough. Several restaurants on the beach. They offer free sunchairs if you buy lunch , but lunch is quite expensive

Really nice beach with plenty of sunbeds if you need it. I love big waves to play in (I'm soon to be 27 but you're never to old to have fun). Not really crowded so you have space to move around.

My friends and I came here for the day. It is located off the main road and down a small path, so it is quite secluded. There are several small restaurants on the beach, but just be aware that you must leave the beach to...More
