“One of the worlds most Beautiful Beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

This is still an absolutely beautiful beach. Unfortunately the secret is out and it is becoming more and more busy. But you still need to do yourself the favor of spending a few hours here just soaking in the sunshine, the gentle surf and the gorgeous views. It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary the day we were there.

“Beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

This was one of our favorite beaches during our 2-week island hopping vacation. The beach is very clean and the water is so blue. The waves were perfect for my 7 yr old to have fun. The beach is a little busy, and activity in the water was just as busy. There were many surfers, kayaks, para-sailors, and wind-surfers. It wasn't excessive, though. It actually added to why we like this beach, because there was so much to watch.
