“This beach is tops with me! Christopher Columbus stated that this was the most beautiful beach he had ever discovered!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Sand is powder like. Where I stayed they raked the beach and kept it very clean and the water is refreshing in Feb. We could see the sun rise from our bed and the sunsets are just as amazingly beautiful!! The extremely tall palm trees made me want to stay forever!!! I have been to a number of beaches in Bermuda, Bahamas, Hawaii, in South America etc and this is the top beach for me...nicer than any beach in Brazil!!!!!!!

“Amazing turquoise Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Warm beach from january to june. best beach to tan,swim, drink, it's clean and so beautiful. The resorts here are more expensive but totally worth it. Outside the resorts they have local restaurants and vendors ... Be careful they will hassle you but that's how they make a living !! The prices of the shops in the resorts are way cheaper but you don't notice till after you bought a souvenir on the beach

“Nice sandy beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Nice sandy beach, a bit of waves at some areas and the sand drops in the water in some areas too, overall nice beach, also a must is to check out some of the other amazing beaches on the island too. I hope this review is helpful.

“Best Beach EVER!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

It was a lovely white beach and you can walk and walk and walk! And we did! Weather was beautiful! Even enjoyed going to the shopping mall right on the beach. Be sure to barter they start out at ridiculous prices! But it was fun!
