We only stopped there on a way back from dolphin tour but it's one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. It's big, with white sand, crystal clear water and beautiful surroundings.

On the East Coast of the island is Paje Beach. Pristine beaches, white sand, crystal clear waters and palm tress make it into a classic paradise island place. The tide can be quiet strong, with the water being a bit far out certain times but...More

OK, there is one store with basic supplies and liquor store an green market in village which you pass through on way from beach to stores. No ice, and it is better that way. Avoid ice or any form of non bottled water.
