The diving is stunning. But the beach and surrounding area looks like a wasteland with piles of rubbish, abhorrent smell, dangerous broken glass bottles, millions of cigarette butts all over the beach (right next to the pristine coral reef and wildlife, sadly) On this note,...More

Clear water but wear beach shoes because of the stones. Also the beach is littered with cigarette butts and bottle tops amongst other things so sitting on the sand is not enjoyable.

This place is just for locals, to sit and eat. Do not reccomend it for tourists, as sand is full of rabbish, very not clean and you do not want to be dressed in swimwear there.

The complex is closed only to hotel guests. You can enter as a paid guest. Entrance is also free for divers through diving clubs. Beach facilities are very good. Restaurants and bars.

This is a beach! There is a small kiosk or coffe shop there if you don't want to use the local hotel.
