Not crowded beach, nobody arrass you, good choice of food even if you eat veggie food, ask the cook of the food shops to make something with vegetables and you will get a nice meal waitin 20 or 30 minites.

You shouldn't miss that beautiful beach near Porto Antonio. At least at the time we were there it was almost a private beach. There are some barracks selling food and drinks - the best is a little restaurant at the end of the beach: Cynthia's...More

When I was there Dec 2016, the man who collected the donations was sweeping the rubbish into a pile near the tideline, then covering it with sand. Beach cleaning.

Hi Crystal, it's public beach, no accommodations or major eatery. You can however plan your own birthday outing, it's free to visit and does have small cook shops catering to delicious local cuisine. Either way you should... More
