Amazing soft white powdery sand, the water was multicolored with different shades of blue, green and turquoise, the seaweed was pulled onto the shores so that was great, the waves were frequent but not too strong. Lots of cute huts and beach beds to lunge on.

The sand is like powder, the sea weed can be off putting, though swept continually a net through the sea would improve it. Enjoyed the chat with the lads on the Shopping Arcade, good fun bargaining. Could describe it as lively, noisy or vibrant.

Amazing how the beach and first part of bed in sea changes daily. One day you can walk straight into sea, sand is flat, next day ruts appear. Some days lots of seaweed appears on beach, but cleaned up bagged and taken away on regular basis. Always nice sea breeze, lots of activity on beach and sea

You can walk for miles on soft white sand. Water is clean, calm and clear blue. Wonderful tropical breeze to keep you cool in the hot sun and there are plenty of palm trees for shade.

The beach is beautiful and clean, the service is really great. The surf is out of their control, but it is really rough.

On the hottest days, the sand was powdery and cool to the touch. I was in awe! The water was not rough....being a non-swimmer I felt safe.
