Truly great hideaway beach for families, couples or small groups. small but very clean beach. Access is through a gated pathway alongside Sheringham Beach Apts. or by the right of way East of Butterfly beach Hotel.

The week we stayed at Bougainvillea Resort, the beach was posted with Red flags because the waters were so rough and there was a ton of seaweed. So unfortunately we were not able to go into the water.

When there is an off shore breeze there is a slight sewage smell. Very private beach no amenities. Watch out for the tides, we were sun bathing and got complacent, big wave came in and soaked us all.

I never saw any chairs to rent on this stretch of beach. There are plenty of places to eat along the road across from the beach.
