We spent an afternoon on this beach. We walked further down the beach to get away from the crowd. Mid-afternoon the cruise ship people left and it was very quiet. We even saw a sea turtle and many other fish while snorkeling.

This place is an average beach that is easy to get to and allows for a relaxing day. I was a bit surprised that this beach makes it into the top 10 beaches in the world. It was nice but nothing spectacular.
