“Scenic, beautiful and lots of waves, but beware of trash”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was one of the more scenic beaches and because of it's location it gets a lot of beach washed coral and sponges. Unfortunately it was crowded and there was a lot of trash including broken glass on the beach. This could have been because we went right after New Years, but it seems consistent with other reviews. This was more of a local beach than one for Tourists. There is also no public bathroom, but there is an icecream truck that circles through fairly often.

“Nice little find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Also a public beach -peacefully tucked away in a pristine neighbourhood. Sandier bottom than Palm beach near the hotel strip the sand here gradually descends into the ocean. The clear blue waters inviting!

“Best small beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Quiet, small waves at times for body surfing. Mostly locals but more tourists as it is discovered. Easy bus ride from the High Rises.

“ROUGH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is a very nice and relatively secluded beach. Over the years it has become a bit rough and the under tows are not really conducive to having other than fairly strong swimmers use the beach. Waves can literally knock you over. Beach area is small but nice. Go and try it out.
