Incredibly clean, this long stretch of white sand is one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen. The sand has almost a pink hue to it and is like stepping on cotton wool. It’s stunning and I’d recommend to anyone.

Just a beautiful beach with snorkeling right off the beach. Views are gorgeous and a few beach bars to kick back and just enjoy life.
