We love it. It is absolutely beautiful. Last visit was the calmest I have seen the waves and it was easier to swim. The waves can be a little tricky if you do not know how to maneuver them. The sand is wonderful and sometimes shelling is really good. Not a lucrative shelling beach. There is a lot of activity available on the beach such as Parasailing, banana boat rafting, beach volleyball and vendors selling jewelry, scarves and wood carvings.

Beautiful beach to walk, but it can be tough to swim if the waves are big

Beach was very clean and excellent to walk. Water is too rough for children or poor swimmers. Might have strong under tow.

This beach is large and beautiful. The sand is soft and clean and the water is so warm. Make sure to take an early morning or evening stroll, we loved it!
