The best part of this beach in my opinion was the Bake & Shark that is sold right across the road. It wasn't break taking or extremely beautiful but it was nice to have experienced it

Good Beach, Food and great local shopping. Beach chairs were a bit pricey so we relaxed on towels. It was the middle of the week so beach was not packed and packing was good.

Okay beach but not in the same class as those found on other Caribbean islands. Best part was the food stands across the road in the parking lot.
