“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Heaven on earth. Crystal clear waters, a fresh water stream running into the ocean that forms a lagoon, nice restaurant/cafe for food and cocktails on site, a botanical garden leading up to the beach.

“Our Favorite Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is an intimate, but fabulous beach. The fresh river running into the cove is full of fish, so take a mask & snorkel! Food a bit pricey, but tastey. Small tour buses usually show up in the afternoon, but not too busy.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We initially visited from Hotel Mockingbird Hill for a day at the beach. This was clean, with sunbeds for hire. The sea was fun, as the clear cool water from the spring nearby mixed with the warm sea. On another visit we explored the grounds as a shower and breeze had made the sea too rough - a red flag was up. We had not realised how extensive the grounds were, or how good they were for birdwatching - we saw many endemics here.

“Wow...what a beach!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Seriously...I don't think I've ever seen a more stunning beach in my life. Protected, freshwater stream, great sand and waves, awesome trees. Truly beautiful. I loved that due to it being a private beach, there were no hucksters. $8 well spent. I really can't say enough about the splendor and beauty of the setting.

The only reason this place is not rated an excellent....Service, food and lack of credit card payment option. Service sucked and was unfriendly, food was bland one day, gross another and despite having internet, electricity and a constant stream of clientele, the restaurant only accepts cash. Bogus and unacceptable in the year 2013.

Bring cash or your own beer and food! Free WIFI is a plus!
