Resorts in general have to upgrade but we visited Kanakbai and Pacific Breeze which are more than acceptable. The advantage of the latter is that they have a kitchen that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner service with real plates and utensils!

We went here when it was off season. The locals were friendly and my friends and I had a good time. Not as expensive as we thought it was going to be.

This is a wide stretch of beach filled with different beach resorts. Depending on the time of the year, waves can get really high. Currents are quite strong and beach waves too. Overall a nice and cheap place to visit.

We saw people trying to surf and even kite surfed but the surfing spot was just to near to the shore. The shore was clean even if there were a lot people but... More
