Owner description: A clothing-optional gay beach.
Reviewed 6 March 2014

We heard about a fabulous gay beach but has now been taken over by a huge hotel. There is now an even smaller section, literally a few feet wide left :( that being said, there are beautiful beaches everywhere.

Arrive at low tide and stay until low tide. Unless of course you are staying at the new hotel that has annoying guests screaming and shouting at each other. Waves are fun but be careful of the rip tides. You might loose a child or two if you are not attentive. No surfing on regular boards but the boogie boards can be fun. Watch the monkeys as they do have a way of taking things you really like.

This is a beautiful area which can be seen from various hotels around the area but better experienced walking along the water or sitting under the tree canopy along the beaches. There are folks always willing to rent or sell you something, including chair rentals. Be assertive, polite, and say no when you do not want to rent or buy. Bring along sunscreen; you'll need it even at 8:00 AM.

The beach was lovely. The water was warm, clear and beautiful. Be careful of the monkeys they will steal things from your backpack.
