Another quiet beach. Locals don't appear to use the beaches much in January! Was there on a Saturday, maybe a bit out of the way.

This is a stunning beach that meets all the stereotypes of an Indian ocean idyll. The Banyan Tree is on the beach offering a good place to go for lunch or a drink.

You can access it easily without any problem. Just bear in mind, that there are no beach facilities around (e.g. showers, toilets, food stalls), so you will have to take everything you need with you.

There are no facilities of any kind anywhere near this beach, except for one hotel. You will have to search elsewhere. It is still worth visiting though, because it's beautiful.
