“Very local”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Not particularly clean, quite crowded and small. If the beach is what means most to you on holiday, I'd chose somewhere else.

“Beautiful but busy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Nice beach, with gorgeous Indian Ocean sunsets but very tiny, super crowded and commercial. Definitely go to the Leela for dinner if you can't stay there.

“Good restaurants but far too much litter!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Good choice of food and drink on the seafront and nice at sunset, but far too much litter at the southern end near the lighthouse steps - this is a tourist resort so please sort this out!!
