So beautiful, great for swimming, safe from sharks with great pontoon in the middle to jump off or soak up the sun.

Good safe spot for families and some great snorkeling looking at the corals and colourful fish. If you don't want to get wet the glass bottom boat is also a great way to see them. Runs at low tide which is also best time for snorkeling

Let's face it, really the only beach but beautiful, sandy and safe inside the reef. Few minutes walk from world heritage site.
