Very beautiful situation with facilities, local bar, a couple of food stalls. Lots of surfers, didn't find the waves that big as other reviewers have said but guess it is weather dependent. Very friendly people both locals and other tourists. Went on my own but spent the afternoon in good, chilled company. Walked through the woods to the next beach... More

I love this beach, the other reviews mentioned big waves but I've never experienced any waves at all. The bar is cool, nice music, food and eats. Iwill admit, more shade is needed but all in all my favorite beach is here.

This beach was nicer than I expected. We had been to pigeon point and there was a lot of sea weed there. But this beach was clean and clear. I don't swim but you can sit in the water and it is as clean and clear. And you don't even have to pay to get in unlike pigeon point which... More

I've been here a few times over the years and it feels like nothing has changed. You can buy sun loungers if you want and there's a little bar/restaurant that does light bites and drinks. A very pretty natural beach with patchy shade a calm warm waters. What's not to like?
