This was a great place to visit. We snorkeled, even though the water was rougher than usual, and saw plenty of fish. Very nice coral reefs right near the coast. We didn't see any turtles but saw lots of fish. Also the beach itself is really nice with beautiful views.

Found fish not too far out on the left and turtles around the lava to the right. Beware sitting under a umbrella won't prevent a sunburn! Got toasty red! Had a big shade tree for the little ones and a big beach for lots of swimming. Not for little swimmers as drops off not to far out? Other beaches you... More

This is probably the best beaches around. The sand is smooth and soft and the water is a gorgeous color and calm and perfect and perfect for snorkeling and other activities provided the waters and waves are all behaving on the day you visit. Apart from the beach fun, there are other things that you could enjoy around here as... More

Beautiful beach with even more beautiful sea turtles resting in the coves between the black rocks. We rode our bikes here, great work-out!

Gorgeous water colour, good for swimming, snorkelling & body surfing when wind and waves are low. A bit harder to get to, but a large arc of beach, with smaller numbers of visitors than some. If wind and rollers are up a bit, this is not a place for little kids.
