Clean beach but not really bounty like. The sand is white, view is magnificent but the water is a bit cloudy. A lot of watersports going on, especially jet ski's, so swimming/snorkeling is only safe inside the marked area's.

Loved this beach, it is a lot quieter and less busy here so you get more privacy. The parasailing beach boys are lovely and give great discounts on the activities here. Sand white and so soft
