“Kotu Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Kotu beach is a wonderful long stretch of golden sand, a good tip if you want a nice peaceful walk you should paddle in the water and say you have been before.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

A lovely beach with fresh fruit sellers and fruit juice vendors. A lovely beach to walk along. There can at times be lads on the beach selling various items but as a rule, if you tell them you are not interested, they leave.

Fabulious Hotel, staff get to know you, no what you like and remember your favourate drink, when around the pool you do not get disturbed and if you are on your own then tend to look after you.

“Chilled long walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Bumsters, who cares just out to earn a living. Take an extra £20 and spend on the beach you won't regret it. Pay 50 p for a bag of nuts, when anyone come nears just say hi, and show them you've bought. They appreciate you have supported the locals and smile you on your way. We used the fruit sellers every other day £3.00 for a big plate of fruit, and the odd glass of fruit juice...why not delicious and fresh. What we reaped in friendliness idle chat was priceless. We walked the beach everyday, and just chose a different place to have a Julbrew each day. It's part of the experience. I will say a bit harder for my teenage daughters as you need to be assertive. I can see why people come back. The sea is always a dangerous place but at Kombo beach there is a life guard. We found if fine to chest height but then we avoided the windier days.
