This is a beautiful spot, but very small.. Even early on a weekday morning there were a number of people on the beach, it must get very crowded on the weekends. We only stayed an hour, the views from the cafe at the top of the cliff are great, but best of all is spotting the quite large crabs that come out of the sand.. There were a number of divers heading out from the beach when we were there. They have beds available for hire.

Great for swimming and diving.
Beds are (the most exp.on cur), the trick is that its incl. a drink from the bar on top of the hill, I call that cheating.....
Its a pity that the "snek" is closed for drinks, snacks and domino.
At around 1700 the small crabs are coming out of the sand.
Nearby is a very good restaurant by the entrance of the P-lot, so you don,t have to go all the way up the hill.

Years ago this was our little secret hide out... Nowadays it's crowded, as it is a little beach. Snorkling is still wonderful here though.

We found this place after the bellman at the Hilton told us it was the best place to snorkel on the island. The beach area is small with very few chairs so don't plan to stay all day if you just want to sunbathe. There are two restaurants and a resort area (all looked a little "shady" compared to USA standards) but not really a beach bar so bring your own refreshments. The best reef area is along the right-hand side of the wall face and is quite impressive. You don't have to be an expert swimmer to get to the best parts so I highly recommend this area for beginners and up. We had a great time here! Parking was free and wasn't very extensive so you may have a hard time finding a parking space at certain times of the year but there is also Playa Kalki if this area is full.
