The water at this beach is absolutely stunning. There were lots of people there, but we had plenty of room to lay out our towels and swim in the ocean. We had a nice time and recommend it.

The "Sea of 7 Colors" is simply beautiful! We traveled with 2 small children and had a great time swimming and playing in the sand.
