“super nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

the beach is quite extensive and beautiful, has many places where you eat and drink. Recommend because it is one of the places where you can swim.

“Impossible to swim in the sea”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

impossible to get cooled as water is at 36 degrees
very shallow for 50 meters from the beach
a lot of coral so enter only in shoes
a lot of sea cucumbers so be careful what you step on
jellyfish happen in the evenings

“Good for sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We enjoyed sunset cocktails on the beach, beautiful beach with lots of places to eat & drink. The water is better to swim in than nearby salad beach, although both are beautiful beaches, and there is a bit more to do in the evenings.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

I really loved the laid back feel of this beach. It's by far more beautiful than some of the other beaches on the island. White sand, calm sea, plenty activities and nice restaurants and bars. Not too busy but not isolated either...good balance!
