just a very beautiful beach with lots of great snorkeling right from shore. The only negative is the vendors who can be relentless in trying to make a sale. Great walking beach. Easy to walk from the beach into the water...very safe.

The beach is very beautiful nice sand vibrant water color, though November the water may not be at its nicest compare to a month or 2 later! There are a lot of people trying to sell you different things or offer you a service which can be excessive at times. Just find a nice quiet spot and your set!

The beach is nice but be aware you will be constantly hounded by people trying to sell you things. If you will notice & sit behind the white markers, the "sales people" are not allowed behind those. So, word to the wise, do not sit in the front row of chairs.

All you had to do was walk in from the shore, and you could see the Fish and Coral. The beach was kept clean by all the local spots.

This beach is not the biggest beach I have ever been to, but it is one of the nicest. We weren't hassled by hoards of vendors, just the occasional polite one. We spent our time drinking on lounge chairs and swimming when we got to be too hot. The water is the saltiest I have experienced, but one of the... More

Most likely you will start sweating after walking in the sun for 5mins. Wear light clothing & sunscreen b-cos you WILL burn if you don't. Very touristy, but good... More
