Beautiful beach. Made for a long walk. In December it can be small rain showers. There are many restaurant to choose between.

A stunning beach with warm crystal clear water. Great for snorkelling along the reef. We were lucky enough to swim alongside a giant sea turtle!

Breath taking views and sunsets. Great running beach too, if your the exercise type. Clean and not to windy.
