There are so many things to do on this beach - watch the surfers, enjoy the beautiful views, get a massage or walk and enjoy the scenic view. Our kids loved it, especially the waves in the morning before high tide came in.

It's a great and long beach. Lots of people surf and body surf and just play in the ocean here. There are some rocks in some places, but don't let the rocks scare you away, because there are lots of parts with no rocks.

This is a very nice beach. The water was great, the sand was nice, and sunset was beautiful. I didn't go surfing, but there were so many surfers out in the water and they were so fun to watch. It also wasn't very crowded when I went (early May), which I always find to be a good thing. There are... More

This beach is fantastic. Beautiful sand and the water was perfect. You can also get a fantastic massage on the beach for an hour for only $25!

The water is amazing, the beach is incredible but the constant harassment by the local merchants (just like most caribean area beaches) is a bit annoying. If you aren't staying at a hotel on the beach, give yourself an 8:30 PM curfew.

Derek and Glen, the owners of the properties and surf school, go out of their way to make sure every guest has an incredible time. I really can't say enough for the experience. The style of vacation doesn't fit into any category that I am aware of.... More
