The beach was OK but seemed a bit dilapidated. Not much going on there with no parasailing or surfboards or boogie boards for hire.

I visited there in December. It was amazing. Clear turquoise sea and white powder sand beach. Walking along the beach in early morning was my favourite actity. It was so relaxed.
