There are a handful of beaches on the Veli island, and since most people are in bungalows they don't get much use, but the sand and beach is great. Very close access to good reefs, super soft (and raked) sand, just don't step on the hermit crabs, they are really fun to watch though. Hammocks and comfy chairs abound.

Check out the website .... it's fantastic. Each comment made sums up how we felt about the resort. A fabulous place and way to spend a holiday. I'd recommend 2 weeks so you get the full 'get away from to all' experience. No shoes, no worries
