Beach was nice with plenty of chairs to rent. Worth the small fee to enter and small charge for chairs. Easy entry into water. Floating dock with ladder. Lots of beach goers here but not overly crowded. Clean beach and clear blue water.

Jan thief has a decent variety of shops, restaurants and bars in addition to a great beach. The beach can get pretty busy with guests from the nearby resorts. The happy hour is very nice.
