“Nice spot to spend an afternoon.”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

Took a cab here from Dunes hotel for about $4. We got a cab one way so we could choose when to leave. We were a bit nervous at first but it felt very safe here. We were dropped off at the waterfront. There was a nice park and many restaurants you could watch the sunset from. We were here a couple of days prior on the jeep tour by magic tours to watch the sunset. It was really beautiful. This was a good place to buy alcohol but the stores were mostly clothing and the same. Some vendors will trade money here at a good exchange. There is a small church downtown but I don't know if you could go in. On the other side of the fort there is a nice small well protected beach. Worth a visit if you are close.

“Great beach... great day”
Reviewed 24 December 2012

Who woulda thunk it, I'd just been to Aruba, Curacao, Mochima and was going to Trinidad... but this was my favourite beach of the trip. Very beautiful.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

All of the bars along the beach are awesome, the beach itself is beautiful and there's a hill to climb to the left with a great view from the top!

“Good beach”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Dislikes: Trash in some areas, alot of vendors going back and forth trying to sell things. Food from restaurants was so-so.

Likes: People very nice overall. Vendors will politely leave you alone if you say no thank you. Restaurant staff do work hard to help you. Blue waters, nice water temp, and great sun. Plus, the wind keeps the bugs away.

Bring lots of sunscreen, the sun is deceptively strong here.
