“Beach Landings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

We love watching the small planes as they takeoff and land on this teeny airstrip...the setting is beautiful and if the planes overshoot the runway, people get up from their beach chairs and help push them back up onto the tarmac. Great walking beach:-)

“Gorgeous beach with 3 great restaurants in walking distance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Fun to watch the planes land and take off as you walk in pristine sand from one great hotel/restaurant to another - all very chic and subtle... no big nightmare hotels on this island!

“Amazing sand, amazing water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

This beach has an amazing view and service. They have suntan bed seating which isn't too pricey($20/day). You can sit on the beach, order drinks and snacks and enjoy the sun! It s a great beach for kids as well. The water is pretty calm and here are a bunch of little fishes swimming around.

“Fine sand, turquoise water, ballet of planes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

I loved this sandy beach that offers super fine white sand and a quiet sea with turquoise water. Almost transparent fish will swim by you in this beautiful spot. Less quiet is the music coming from Nikki beach and the spectacular landing and taking off of planes. 2 mythical places have elected domicile on this beach : The Eden Rock and Nikki Beach. But you can as well freely access many spots.

“Near Airport but beautiful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

even though the beach can be somewhat noisy at times when planes are landing, we actually enjoyed watching all the planes come in! beautiful beach otherwise as well, and easy access to nikki beach, eden rock, la plage, etc.
