Amazing beach with great views! Also very clean! Great for family and friends and couples! Water the sunset with family and it was gorgeous! Would definitely recommend for a day at the beach, and plenty of food, drinks and places to shop as very near the American village!!

Nice little family beach next to Depot Island. Vending machines, picnic areas, tents and grills to use. Unfortunately it was the start of jellyfish season, so there were red flags on portions of the beach, but they had netting in an area so you could still swim. The break wall and drain steps make it nice to just sit and... More

Don't expect Waikiki or Australian Beaches and you won't be disappointed. It is an amazing beach to watch the Sunset but not suitable for swimming (the water at the time of our visit was ankle deep as it was low tide) and the beach itself it not big. There are clear signs to say swimming is not allowed. However, there... More

It was so peaceful watching the sun disappear over the water. From where we were watching a guy was playing a ukulele as the sun went down. It was my first sunset since my arrival so it made me a little emotional! So glad we had at least one sunny day to see a gorgeous sunset while we were here.

Great place to go for a walk, run or bike. Can either walk on sand or path. Beautiful views of the water and surrounding communities. Public showers, mojito bar and some restaurants. Very relaxing and fun.

A decent beach to walk in the sand, dip your toes in the water, or get a drink at the beach-side shack. Rather busy and small, though. I preferred Araha Beach for lounging and swimming.

I imagine it is very busy in the summer and on the weekends. But we were there in Nov and on a weekday afternoon. There were only a few people there.

Fine sand and great looking water make it a nice little beach. Urban beach though, as buildings surround it.

The beach is nice with a bar to order drinks and food. I do not prefer this beach because there is no shower and the bathrooms smell bad.

Coarse sand, small beach, not much to see. Nearby hotels really boasts about the beauty of this beach but we simply couldn't see it. Very average beach to say the least.
