“Get your walking shoes on.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

On a sunny day this is an excellent place for a great walk. Work off some of those croissants I have been eating for breakfast every day.

“Lovely place to eat if you can tolerate the smoking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The dining strip offers good food but is spoilt by a constant exchange of cigarette smoking patrons. Don't bother asking for non-smoking, it doesn't exist even when waiters say 'no problems. In fact, we had one waiter who was very polite with his service then proceed to sit down for his lunch great and have a smoke opposite our table. The beach is mostly stones on sand, though the grass strip is pleasant if you don't have someone sit next to you and smoke. A se Vat a is a much better beach for swimming.

“Apart from the beach just a cafe strip with no character”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

I would have scored this beach very good if not from the disappointment of finding it was now turned into a strip of cafes, some of dubious quality. Snorkeling from the beach is popular and the other activity is as outlined, eating. I went there for breakfast and the only place opened for breakfast was a complete disappointment. Anse Vata has more to offer along the beachfront but the 'eating out' scene at both areas is completely overpriced and overrated.
