Secluded. Nice to relax

Beautiful and secluded. Not as blue as the photos in the past due to the seaweed influx. But a good place to be alone and just relax for a couple hours!

The walk down to this small beach is beautiful! We met a man as we pulled up called Flex who told us we could have the beds for nothing and offered us a drink. Again it was affected by the seaweed, As were a few of the beaches, but the surrounding area was amazing. Well worth a visit

What a beautiful beach with natural beauty, this is not your typical beach as you can't go into the sea as the currents are very strong but the sand is white and the water is clear There is a cave and the surroundings are pretty perfect for a picnic or afternoon stroll It's a hidden gem

This is the kind of beach you see on all the postcards - white sands and bright blue sea with tall coconut trees dotted around. A beautiful beach - also the added bonus of fresh coconut picked from the palms just for us.

A bit hard to find, looks like your pulling into a gravel driveway but off to the left is a staircase, about 50 stairs and a short beautiful path is the most breath taking sight I've ever seen, no one was on this pice of beauty, there's plenty of shade trees and a part of the cliff bends just enough...

This beach is well off the beaten track. From the cliff the view of the beach is amazing. There is a feeling of being in paradise as you walk from one end of the beach to the next, wading in the sea water (just ankle deep) as the waves wash in and out. It is not recommended that you bathe... More

My husband and I visited this deserted beach today. It was relatively easy to find. Must walk down stairs in ill repair. The beach suffered from the seaweed and litter. I picked up the litter and placed it in the receptacles available. However, how often does on get to be on a beach and take in natural scenery. When we... More

Beautiful beach and area. I read that it is hard to find but I had no trouble. Seaweed issue at the time we went. But it is still a very scenic area. I would not recommend swimming at all.

We have been staying in Bottom Bay for three weeks now, The beach is awful, smelly seaweed 2 feet deep on the waters edge and very thick within a couple of feet of going into the sea. Sun beds are few and far between we counted six available. The rubbish everywhere as you leave the car was a real turn... More

This area was another liming spot for me and my girlfriends but to be honest if I could have married her there and then I would have. Beautiful sight, cool area and so tropical
