A massive and very busy beach. Sand was nice, and sea is shallow and water is clean. Good to learn to surf. My 8 yr old and husband paid $50 (US) for a 90 min lesson. Make sure you stay in the yellow and red flags though as it can be dangerous. There was a report in the paper of a tourist drowning this week. We paid 270 rup for 3 beds and drinks all day ( beer and water) and 2 surf boards too. This was at the far end of the beach where the vendor has Bob Marley decor. I think it's called One Love.
The constant sellers of silver tat, bracelets, CD,s, DVD,s, magazines and fruit are very annoying when they do not take no for an answer. I did not like about 5 of them gathering around my bed and not moving. I found the best way to not get hassled was to wear sunglasses and a hat and pretend they did not exist.
It's a pity there are so many wild dogs roaming around too. I know some of them may be rabid, which made me fear for my children's life - literally. But they just poo on the beach and no one clears it ( or any other litter up). I would have happily paid the seller's to pick up the poo and tidy the beach, instead of trying to sell me tat.
The bars and restaurants along that road are ok, but nothing special.
