“Clean beach and calm sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Although I love the sea I am not a good swimmer and I was able to swim on this beach with no fear. It was also fun watching all the tiny striped bright coloured fish darting in and out of the rockpools.

“Tree-lined picturesque beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is one of the prettier south coast beaches, soft sand and plenty of palms close to the water. On some stretches it is advisable to wear sea shoes when swimming. It is not particularly rocky but there are broken pieces of coral on top of the sand. At one end of the beach a vendor has arranged a clever display of his hand-carved mobiles, which spin round in the breeze.
