“Our favorite beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A beautiful beach, clear, calm, turquoise waters. A nice place to spend the day. The restaurant Rhythms Beach Bar has good food and drinks. You can rent chairs and an umbrella as well as Jet Skis - the guys who run the rentals are very nice.

“beautiful beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Went to the beach during a none docking cruise ship day and it felt like I had the beach to myself! amazing blue blue waters. Peaceful listening to the waves and watching the boats. The only downside was the public restroom was not open. My guess is that they are only open when the ships are docked?! easy parking.

“Sandy beach, calm water, best sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The beach is sandy and perfect. Water is usually calm, perfect for swimming or floating. And the sunsets are amazing. Snorkeling isn't great, but there are places by the mooring balls to see lots of fish and the calm water is perfect for novice snorkelers. There's also a watersports rental on the beach with jet skis and kayaks. And Rhythms with great food and drinks. This beach has it all!

“Convenient for cruise passengers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This beach was recommended to us by a local shop owner as a good beach for families with small children. Located only a few minutes’ walk from the cruise terminal, it was very convenient. The beach showed some signs of being popular in the weekends (we visited it on a Monday) with some trash still left in the sand, but nothing serious. We rented some sun beds from the nice and friendly people in the surf kiosk. The beach is sandy and nice and the sea is perfect, but there are some rocky places out in the water that is a little painful to walk on. Great service and tasty, cold drinks in the little bar. All in all this is a convenient and good beach.

“Great beach super quiet!”

We loved this beach. Went at 10:45 and we were the only ones there. Terrific swimming, beach bar for drinks and food as well as water sport rentals.
