Take a dirt road across from the post office to the beach. It is great! Loved it. Soft sand, some coral, so need to be aware of where you are swimming, but lots of fish for snorkeling. Beautiful view of water bungalows and Tahiti.

Absolutely stunning beach, incredibly clear water, very calm, water shoes would be a bonus here. There is quite a bit of coral in places and sand is coarse. Make certain to wear a hat, have water and sunscreen.
