So much to see & do, something for everyone. Best beach on the island apparently! Quieter areas as well as dedicated seating areas, surfing, snorkelling, variety of restaurants to choose from. Love it! Great facilities for getting changed, shower, lockers etc.

The urban beach is totally lovely with a nice place to walk along the beach. Good restaurants to eat or enjoy the sunset. The atmosphere is magic with a lot of people doing sports and native residents enjoying the end of the day. The beach is clean and a great space to have a bath or enjoy the sun.

You can walk on the soft/hard sand or on the beach boulevard. Both are in very good condition and good for a morning or afternoon jog. And there are many good soldering or refill places and also Granier Pandeteria you can get very good goffee.
