This beach is beautiful-- you must go to the area called "Croco-Beach", which has large, thatched umbrellas to sit under for protection from the sun. The water is beautiful, which waves breaking at intervals on their way to the shore, very beautiful. There are tide pools; great for dipping. The sand is very wide, ideal for a soccer on the...

I've been there on a buggy tour, which I strongly recommend (be careful though to pick certified buggy driver to avoid accidents). This is a long beach, with plenty of nature around.

You swim in the warm ocean and take an outdoor shower from the natural springs. Not usual.
