We found this a wonderful beach, although a little cool and windy in early August. Great for kite surfers though. Worth noting that unless you have urchin proof shoes you should only swim at high tide and not go out too deep.

Very beautiful white sandy beach with miles of long walks. Very shallow waters. Excellent for swimming and snorkelling. Please don't get involved with local beach boys. Rip off merchants! This place is natures gift mankind. Enjoy it and respect it too.

Clean, white sand that stretches long and wide. Skydiving, and microlight tours can be done on the beach as well as plenty of watersports. Snorkelling at the nearby marine park not to be missed.

Sitting poolside in the shade reading and swimming was just what we needed to unwind. The dhow ride out to the sandbar/coral reef gave our daughter her first chance to snorkel and she loved it.

white sandy beach and very clear water the only draw back are the beach boys trying to sell you trips but I suppose one has to try and make a living.

I'm a beach person, and this one is very much to be enjoyed. It experiences large tidal variations, so you go from a sweeping swell across the strand back to sand lagoons, ideal for safe-swimmers. I reckon it would get hairy offshore with currents. When the tide s out, the full moon is just stunning. At the north end are... More
