Nice little beach... about 20 min. drive from Ochi

We went there for the day... fair entry price and for the lounge chairs. Check out Moonraker Bar. The beach is very small, but cozy.. and the water is nice and warm

A beach that is sort of private if you want to host a family get together or company sports day. Very seclusive has a tree house where you can host party, a place for sports running that 100m or even to have your own bbq, a place is provided there.

This beach has it all. Nice gentle cove with no waves. .....reggae vibes playing as you swim and float in the clear, emerald waters. The people are all very friendly and I had heard the opposite. The price to get in is beyond fair for the amazing grounds this place has. The bar has 2 floors of 360 degree views... More

Well worth a visit and don't be put off by the apparent distance. Regular taxi,s ply the route and they are fairly cheap. If the taxi drops you at the long walk there is a very pleasant fruit stall and a fishing village on the way; best though to ask to the taken to the short entrance. Taxi drivers will... More

We were driving there with a hertz rental and took the first road with a sign advertising the beach. It was a very bad road, poorly marked and extremely rough. After about 1/4 mi. we had a blow out which finished our trip to the beach. Had 3 locals willing to help but did it myself. If driving there yourself... More

This is a small fishing village with a small beautful beach. Bring your own picknick, enjoy your stay and you will meet lots of local people.

The beach was nice! It seems to be a great local beach that allowed you to mingle with the locals. My children had a great time at the paint party at their recent event. There was dancing, fun and more fun filled with hundreds of people. On a regular day, it is a good hang out. Their is also a... More

We were on Princess Cruise and took taxi to James Bond beach. The ride was about 40 minutes from Cruise port. Not too many people there , water is very clean. And you have wifi Access which is a plus .
