The water at this beach is great for swimming, but one has to be careful as depending on where you are bathing, there may not be a life guard on site. However, there are generally warning flags up

Easy access from the road to beach, lovely inshore snorkel site. Scenic. Washrooms, foot baths, bar, sun, sea, and sand the most important!

Took my kids here to surf, very affordable price for the afternoon, be careful of the coral and the waves are on shallow water and if your fall off you might get scraped. Ok beach but Pigeon Point is a way better beach.

Nice to snorkel and swim, little place to lie in the sun. Must get there early morning or late in the evening.

Love the swimming but enjoy bathing on the quiet side of the beach where things appear to be a dollar dearer!! I think it's managed by a local hotel, but the sea is less Stoney and easier to swim. Facilities are great with the option of buying lunch from a local store/cafe. Clean too!

We went here a few times, but did not see many different fish when snorkeling. We saw lots of little ones (all the same kind). We should try again before we leave. There are 2 sections of the beach, and one has some huts at the roadside where you can buy a wonderful roti. Go early so they are not... More
