“Stunning and secluded!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Probably the most amazing beach I have ever been to. It was beautiful and unspoilt. Only a few stalls and bars near the entrance. We managed to find a spot which was completely to ourselves. A must visit!

“a looooot of puka shells!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Not much to do here. This was one of our stops when we had our island hopping. We just bought some accessories from the locals there. It was a little difficult to walk because the sand was too soft, and there were a lot of shells (not comfy for you feet).
But if you want quiet and less people, this is definitely worth a visit.

We went for a dip of the crystal blue water and white sand, so great we didn't want to leave the place, it was like paradise!

“Fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Food is worth the wait. I already said what I wanted to but TripAdvisor wants me to write at least 50 characters.

“Beautiful, remote beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Feels like you're at the end of the world here. There are huge coconut trees lining the hillside and wonderful turquoise water lapping at the beach. The only vendors here are selling shell jewelry and are much fewer than at White Beach. There's a small restaurant with nice food that you can eat in the shade of the bushes. Very rustic, but nice.
