The beach was clean and well maintained. There is a rental shack where you can rent snorkel gear, etc. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained. A bar onsite with very reasonable... More

The water was beautiful and the staff at the restaurant were very kind. If you're looking for a quiet beach, this ain't the place. A man screamed through a mike for an hour getting people to dance and do games. Fun if you're looking for that. We weren't.

I decided to visit this beach based on recommendation from friends. We were there about 9:30 (before the crowds) It was calm and quiet with few people at that time. The changing rooms & restrooms were clean but filled with mosquitos

Adjoining Doctor's Cave so fairly similar. Here one can book a 3-hour catamaran trip that includes a stop for snorkeling.

I have done many excursions in the past and by far this is the worst!!! First off they tell you where to sit , the lady doing all the games/activities was basically yelling at people over the mic, which did not make any of us 5 want to participate. Then after being there an hour 2 huge cater-meran boats came... More
