Perfect place to relax if you are around

Nice beach to relax with chairs, beds and places to eat and drink. There is also a very small playground for kids and dedicated pool. You pay entrance to the beach (parking... read more

If you want to lie in a lounge chair and fry its ok. Not a lot of shade spots even though you pay for the beach chairs. Snorkeling is pretty poor.

Nice beach to relax with chairs, beds and places to eat and drink. There is also a very small playground for kids and dedicated pool. You pay entrance to the beach (parking included) and additionally for beds/chairs. In general, nice place to relax with full service. If you are looking for natural wide beaches with white sand this place is... More

Five of us went to this beach because my husband wanted to try fly boarding and this is where it is located. It is a man-made beach with beach chairs side by side to each other. It was not a busy day since it was cloudy and raining earlier in the morning however I get the impression if all the... More

We paid the $7 US to get in. The only good thing about that is that it made us really appreciate the beach we had at the Hilton. We were there on a Saturday, it was mobbed. Getting a chair seemed impossible. There is a wall holding all the sand up, it is not a typical beach. With all the... More

A very small beach with few restaurants, diving shop, showers, everything you need for a good beach day. It is normally not very crowded, therefore a good option.
