Once you get down to the beach and look behind to the tidal mark there is rubbish everywhere. There are a couple of resorts lots of tourists. Take plenty... More

one of the most spectacular beaches that is in the island. definitely one with the whitest sandiest and flat sand bed to roll around in the sun and play water sports without any danger. The sunrise can be seen from this side of the island and there are multiple resorts here with throngs of people around for the beach. The... More

Clean shore. Clear water. Small wave. Jet ski offered at $17/10 minutes. Services like locker, changing room, shower, beach bench, refreshment are readily available. Cannot expect more from a beach on this island. I have been to several beaches here but Sao beach is unmatched by any others. Though, I have not tried the food here. Anyway, for beach-lovers, I...

This was a nice beach. It took a while to find the right route to get there as they were currently building a new road so you have to take the 'scenic' route. The beach was nice but nothing compare to the beach we were at on Long Beach. It's worth a visit to get away from everyone else. I'm... More

We spent a few hours here and it really is beautiful, however we felt it was much busier than are quiet strip of Long beach. All the same a nice place to visit and have food/drink.

This beach is beautiful and romantic with its white sand and coco trees BUT sadly full of plastic and garbage. Locals do not seem to care about it. Makes me mad.

This could be one of the nicest beaches on the island. A bit remote which adds to the charm. If you walk away from the restaurants, you can find yourself playing Robinson Crusoe!
