Fidjrosse beach is a nice hangout. It features a few places to eat and one that hang out by the beach to do a few sporting activities. However, the beach water is not so clean. Erosion of the beach-side is also a problem.

A great place to visit, Chill by the sound of the beach and the birds. Unfortunately the beach is not accessible and it is dangerous to swim out there.
