Blue water

I just loved this beach.. Blue water and trees. You can enjoy sea walk, snorkeling, scuba-diving and many more... If some one is a water person then this beach is perfect.

This beach has a loot of people on it. Its small and noisy. Although its very easy to walk to a private beach anywhere nearby.
