“Skip it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Dirty, with broken glass and empty rum bottles. Rocky and not swimmable.Not worth the drive out - but looks good from far!

“Good but lonely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Nice beach...beautiful waters, but very lonely. when I went here, there were just 8-10 people, no one in the water, all of them sitting on the sand. so dont know how safe it is to swim here. No food/ hotels available here.

“Too small”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The beach is merely a stretch of coarse sand sorrounded by rocky outcrops. The beach is not well maintained. While the water is rough, it can still be enjoyed. The biggest letdown is that entering the water is banned due to croc threat
