Cable Beach is fantastic and I don't know when I've ever seen water that blue. The safe swimming area was clearly marked and the beach was clean.

The beach was nice but I don't 'know that it is one of the top 5. There were some jelly fish to be aware of while I was there. I did the camel ride during the day and that was nice for the price.
