A beautiful beach with loads of restaurants across the road and heaps of activities available on the beach itself ranging from beach volleyball to parasailing. Clear, warm waters and quite a few fish swimming around. Fantastic place to relax.

The beach was fantastic. Not hassled by people selling things. Sometimes hard to get a chair and umbrella but that doesn't really matter. Great massages and beautiful clear and clean swimming.
