“Lovely”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We aren't surfers but loved the location. Lots of exploring to do if you like to snorkel. Water is clear and warm.

“Gorgeous beach, good surfing, lots of volcanic rock in sand beds”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The water is beautiful and warm, the surfing is great, the palm trees sway in the breeze.
Just be careful about the lava rock in the water on the beaches; it's sporadic and can be dangerous.

“Raw, untamed beach...”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I guess it had to do with the time of year we went, but, so much room, and the warmest water at 86' F...Wow..

“FInd the little booth with Jamaican Meat Patties!!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This booth is in the main road thru town next to a T shirt shop. The booth has nothing but display case with Jamaican Patties inside. They have meat, veggie and plantains ones. I would ride my bike to here in the morning to get them. They where still warm and o so good. The vendors are so nice. AT a $1.20 a piece they where a true bargain. I so wish they could ship to me!
