We went to swim but it was too windy but we did enjoy walking along the beach. We found it to be very clean, perhaps it has been cleaned up? As it was windy, the beach was deserted and noted not a lot of shade which we would have liked had we swam and then rested. Still lots of food... More

The sea is great there and water is very shallow, clean and sandy. The colour is beautiful and reminds me the Caribbean waters. There also few people on the beach selling food but they are quiet and non-hassle. They sell some fresh food such as mussels filled with rice and lime, fresh water melon or even cooked fresh water prawns.... More

Why does there have to be so much trash on this amazingly beautiful beach??? The water is pleasant even in late Sept. and the beach is so calm perfect for young children. my kids loved playing in the sand.

we walked for 2hours, it was lovely. The water was warm 23 degrees. The people were so friendly, we even took a few photos with locals and a local walked the whole 1 hour stretch with us to show us where the natural thermal pool was. Absolutely lovely. Sand is a tad dirty but walk closer to the water and... More
