“A great Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It will cost you £6.00 you are right on the jetty to do some fanastic snorkelling. Be warned the coral is right underneath and you can end up hurting yourself if you are not careful dive shoes a must !!
A couple of restuaurants very pleasant and quiet.

We were out of season and the bar was a little dry! For people from the UK October is a good time to come, so more drinks please!

“Good value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

nice beach with a climb down towards the sea for snorkelling. It's very shallow for a long way out and the coral is sharp and slippery, so it's worth investing in those rubber shoes to keep your feet safe. Its easy to slip and get cut. Take an underwater camera!
