This is where me and my daughter went Fly Boarding. It is a matter of balance, all in the ankles. She had no problem getting up and they left her out there for a good half hour. I however being over 50 had a bit of difficulty. However the two Dutch boys were great in helping me get up. However... More

I am a snorkeler, not a sun worshipper or one who parties at the beach, so understand where I am coming from. I found this to be a really crowded beach, which I did not like. We were on the left side and I felt packed in like a sardine :). The snorkeling was not good either. My highlight of... More

If you like to be on a beach that have people in beach chairs side by side with loud music playing then this is the beach for you. There are so many beach chairs that you have trouble seeing the sand. There are many nicer beaches.

We walked down here today mid day. It is a stunning spot with a gorgeous rocked in ocean pool. The beach itself is tiny but the area is PACKED to the brim with people, music blaring etc. Not my thing but if this is what you like - perfect.

Rent a cabana from Zanzibar and have mojitos delivered to you regularly. What else could you want? Affordable and friendly.

There is no actual long sandy beach to walk on, but a long waterfront with a couple of access points to the water. The excellence is in the number of restaurants/bars offered and snorkeling is reasonable right in front of it.

This is more of a beach front resort than a beach itself. It's very developed, with access to any water sport you could want, several restaurants and bars and three distinct "beach" areas all with chairs and plenty of palm tree shade. There isn't really a sandy beach though - one area is an infinity pool bordering the ocean, and... More
