You can't see the bottom and full of rocks and sea weed. It feels like the sand is too fine and never settles.... not like the pictures at all!

What a relaxing place to stop on a cruise. Great jerk chicken in the park. Nachos were awesome at Margaritaville with plenty of entertainment. With a lot of places to shop.

the blue sea is beautiful and the sand is white and clean. the only down side is the locals try to sell weed to you and the smell of them smoking near by does become overwhelming. the security staff do try to contain the behaviour.

I liked this beach because it was long enough to go for a walk. It was not hard to find chairs at any time of the day.

The beach was well maintained and there were plenty of activities led by the recreation people. You could sit under the palm trees and enjoy a drink from a fresh coconut, Or you could sit in the sun and tan, then cool off in the water.

Water was so incredibly blue. It was absolutely breath-taking. Water was so clear. It was great swimming with my wife. She could not stop talking about how great the water was. Can't wait to come back. FRANC
