This was our favorite beach. Waves on the south side of the island are more gentle and there is awesome body surfing in crystal waters and fine sand

Beautiful and quiet beach. No restaurants, no shade, just the perfect beach. You´d better take an umbrella and some snack to enjoy your day there.

The beach is entirely deserted and beautiful but signs warn of strong currents. Snorkelling is good.

Extremely beautiful being from the start. If you wait for the tide to come down you can even see these natural pools that are incrieble. Worth going
