Straight off jetty into the best reef

Has a chill out feel which is a good contrast to nearby hotels. The jetty gives access straight onto an amazing reef with 30 meter drop off.

This is a pay to visit private beach ( well jetty) and bar. It is well worth a visit if you want to get away from the blaring music of the hotel Animation teams along the coast as the bar has several comfy sunbeds or cushioned areas to sit and listen to the sea , to a background of soothing...

I did my night dive from this beach. You need to pay to get in, but it's worth it. For a little fee you get peace and quiet with great views, relaxing music in background, no hassle and great house reef suitable both for snorkeling and for diving. Tasty and reasonably priced food at the beach restaurant. I had a... More

Wonderful views from the excellent restaurant/bar area. The food is excellent and well priced.Toilets are cleaner than many hotels. More suited to couples, but there is a shallow area for children...

75 Le entrance fee gets you a sun bed, towel and bottle of water which I thought was very reasonable, on site spa, showers and restaurant/bar. Snorkelling off the jetty is out of this world if you only visit for this it is well worth the entrance fee!!

For the 75 Le entrance cost, I was expecting better. The position is spectacular, the toilets are spotlessly clean, and the Massage was good value and quality.... however I was unable to relax due to the noise/music blasting out from the restaurant (I did ask them to turn it down, which they did very briefly). The food at the restaurant... More

The lounging area is great and very accommodating and at a cost of £7.50 for a towel and a bottle of chilled water and take your boating shoes for a paddle in the sea and see the fishes
