Our beach early morning work outs followed by a swim. So calm and great for an easy swim. it is so quiet at times you feel like your shipwrecked did not see Tom Hanks though or the DHL plane but there was a football. Strange!

This beach is quite isolated the waves can be a little rough here not ideal for small kids. The sand is lovely. Turtles sometimes seen here.

White sand, palm trees and calm sea while I was there, all in all, a nice place to be!!. At the time of my visit, the sea was so warm that once in, you wanted to stay in!!.

By far the best beach on the whole island. I will never forget this place. Our hotel was right on this beach and we certainly made the right choice in Butterfly Beach Hotel.

Sand so white and clean you never want to leave. A truly relaxing time. Don't give this a miss on your next trip.

Our beach apartment was on this beach. Gorgeous, warm, calm waters. The sand was like powder! I saw a lot of night divers, and it's not rocky at all. You can walk barefoot out for about 30 feet. It's not full of hagglers or people trying to sell you stuff, very quiet.

We stay on this beach and it is a little gem. Unlike the west coast the sea has a bit of life to it here so be aware of the currents and sometimes the waves can take you out. But the sand is soft and the water is warm.

Clean and calm beach, clean water and friendly people, at least during daytime. If you are Lucky you might end swimming with some turtles, there are many of them..

I stayed here 4th of July and it was a small relaxing beach. I would not make a special trip to see it but to stay there it was very nice.
