Brilliant - fairly secluded with lots of shade and safe bathing. Lots of fish to see by the reef too.

We were staying at the Coconut Court hotel situated on the beach. On a walk along the beach we found one of the turtle rescuers who was rescuing a bucket load of infant turtles ready for release later in the day. That made my holiday.
