My wife and I visited the beach in July and August. It is very clean, with beautiful white sand and a picturesque view of the bay. We truly enjoyed our daily visits to the beach.

Little bay is a great place to relax. We have stayed at the resort there and will again. Snorkeling is good with the calm water. We have seen lots of little fish and enjoy it more and more each time.
