Loved this beach. You can snorkel or higher canoes to go to nearby coves and Islands. Good restaurants and hotels nearby and lots of choice hiring gear. Truly idyllic

Beautiful beach, perfect temperature water, nice snorkel and if you swim far back you will see an unbelievable blue water! They have some roofs with banchs and tables, perfect for relaxing. I loved a day trip in there!
