We stayed here for 3 weeks and enjoyed everyday at the beach. The beach is one of the cleanest I ever visited. Of course you'll find algae at the sand but hey that is a virgin beach! The shallow water goes at least hundred meters...More

This is the place to go for a quiet getaway. Welcoming locals and a long stretch of uninterrupted white sand beach. The waters are calm, the sunsets are amazing, the tourists are few and far between.

There are no docked boats here, and mostly the beach is clear and non muddy - however, at certain times of year (unpredictable) there can be a lot of seaweed washed up.
