I reserved palapas on the beach for the week we visited. If you don't mind paying to reserve, it is well worth it. The beach is somewhat crowded, and there is a lot of activity, but we still found it quite relaxing. The water was pleasantly warm, and was a nice break from the heat. The seaweed on the ocean...

On the whole a beautiful beach but best spot is outside the Radisson Hotel, here the white sand is very fine (no stones) and always seemed to have a nice gentle breeze (further down can be very windy and you often get a painful blast of sand to the body/up the nostrils while sunbathing!

I liked Eagle beach a lot more. Palm beach is nice for the amenities but it's far from the ideal of tropical beach. Sooooo many beach chairs, soooo many people!

This beach is fantastic! Literally feet away when staying at most hotels in the High Rise area. The water is clear and very little wave activity. Perfect for relaxation and fun. Lots of water sports available for the more adventurous type.

Nice beach, but they take away the sunbeds as early as 5.... Then go to the snackbars on the beach for a snack & drink.
