Very coarse, kitty litter type sand and rough waves make this poor as beaches are concerned. Very pretty though to look at. Great clear aqua water, mountains in the background on one end. Beautiful to look at, hell to swim in!

The water is so blue and warm with a nice sandy beach! Lots to do in terms of jet skis and boat tours. It really is a little piece of Heaven!.

Just a few steps away from your room. Stayed in the calm, warm water until the sun set. The water is crystal clear and you can see the cruise ship in the port. You can also relax on the comfortable benches on the boardwalk.
