Read some terrible comments about how this place is being spoilt by overcrowding and too many visitors. For that reason we didn't specifically visit. However, on a break on a dive trip, our boat moored just outsside the bay. Clearly, this is an extraordinary and beautiful place. But we could harldy see the water or the beach for the hundreds of boats and people.
This piece of paradise is paying a very high price for its moment of fame brought by featuring in the movie "The Beach."
