Should not be missed! This is the the archetypal tropical beach that one drools over in the travel pamphlets.

Great beach to go for a walk. Go early before it gets too hot and be sure to use sunscreen and a hat and take water for drinking.

Beautiful beach and warm water depends what month you visit like any beach . There are nets to swim in so you are protected from jellyfish but never garuantued. White sand beautiful warm water not like southern Australian beaches and water .

This is one of the best running beaches in the world. Its nice and flat at low tide, and very consistent under foot using joggers. It is like a postcard on a still day and one of the best places to chill out and watch the world go by.
