Take private tour comp transportation from dock for $80-100 per day. You'll have a private guide for your entire group and pick of the beach. Some restaurants do charge a beach fee of $10 pp but includes nice spot on beach, lounges, umbrella and use of basic bathroom/shower. Cruise ship area is crowded but close to reef.

truly beautiful beach and well worth the visit. It's not over crowded and the sand is perfection. The water is a perfect temperature. I would love to return here one day and spend more time.

Beautiful beach! There are a lot of locals selling merchandise but that did not bother me. The snorkeling is excellent!

Aside from the various resorts that line thia beach, it is very clean and pristine. The water has exceptional visibility and there are no rocks or shells upon entry. There are some coral rocks further out and also reefs in many areas. The sand is white and the water turquoise.

If you enjoy swimming on pristine white sand beaches and snorkeling on world class reefs (one-to two minute swim from the beach) this is the place. We were here for two weeks and still did not explore all the reefs available on the beach.

Hawkers of all sorts never give you a minute's peace. Inadequate shade unless you stay at one of the higher-end resorts who provide. Is decent snorkelling at far south end.

Had a great time. Booked our excursion through shoreexcursioneers. Much cheaper than booking through our cruise ship (less than half the price for the same thing). Our guide Orlin picked us up at the cruise terminal. We told him we wanted to do a little shopping before we went to the beach. He took us to some great shops away... More
