“Beautifully quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

It wasn't THE prettiest but it wasn't far short and it was perfectly peaceful and quite. I think the prettiest beaches are a bit further up...maybe Salad Beach.

“Best sunset beach on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

It doesn't look that different from the rest, and indeed we all have our favourite, but this beach has something for everybody. A good mix of quiet resorts, from cheap to expensive, a decent mix of bars and restaurants - Seaflower Heaven beach bar is THE best….and at one end the Pirates bar where they have a weekly party. What's not to like?

“small, beautiful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Dpn't know about other months, but In December there is lots of trash on the beach and some resorts ( most actually) do not care to clean it ( both litter brought out by water and seaweed - loooots of it) . my daughter cut her foot on some old piece of metal.
Other than that - it's a beautiful beach - close coral reef and snorkeling ( 200 mtrs), lots of shade. Only a few places have sun beds in shade, some have none - do your research :)

“calm, serene and a cool pirate's bar.”

Sunset Cove resort here offers excellent value and comfort. The beach is laid back and sunsets are stunning.
