We took a 10 Reals water-taxi to this beach on a Tuesday during the busy season and had the best time! We were greeted right away and seated with two chairs and an umbrella fairly close to the beach. It was a little busy in the morning, but everyone cleared out at noon to go to other beaches. It was perfect, small, relaxing and quiet. The water was calm and there were many children playing in the water because it was very safe. The servers were very friendly, efficient, and happy. The beach looks like it belongs on a post-card. It's surrounded by rocks that were climbable even for a wimp like me and we climbed the perimeter to take the usual I'm-on-vacay-in-an-exotic-place pictures. The water was blue-green/emerald green and crystal clear which made it easy to see fish and coral. We stayed the entire day there and left before sunset. We ate a fresh fish that a guy had just caught and grilled. The fish was seasoned better than any fish I've ever eaten (and I'm from New Orleans….we love our seafood.) It was served with baked potatoes, rice, and a salad. We went to several beaches after this day hoping to have the same experience as we did on this beach and never did. It was amazing!! DON'T MISS THIS BEACH!!

This one is surrounded by excellent guesthouses and hotels and with some very good restaurants with its tables right on the sand near sho=re where one can order drinks and fingerfoods right there, with the water reaching your feet.
