Very beautiful beach but way too crowded... have to step over lots of people to get anywhere on the beach.... There are other nicer less populated beaches

Always beautiful but very crowded at times. Entering and exitign the water a little deceiving as there is a stop down when enetering makes it hard to get in and out. Petty thefts occur.

Another beautiful beach - a little too busy and crowded for us. Prefer the windward beaches, but now we can say that we were there!

But so many people walking, cycling, roller skating. also a lot of surfing and Kayaking. Plebty if showers along the beach to clean off and lots of beach cafes and bars. Very busy but worth a visit.

Beach is wide, with fine, whitish sand, with waves not to high so small children can play with close supervision. Great view of the surfers riding the swell off the reef. Very clean and, surprisingly, not crowded. It was end of September so maybe this was not the high season.
If you come to the beach with towel only and wish to rent umbrella and sun chair, it gets really expensive. At the rental at Hilton Village Resort we paid 68 dollars for 2 sunchairs and umbrella. And they forgot to mention that it is only till 5pm, at 5pm they came and started dissembling the stuff, we were lucky we were there at that time. When we complained that it is too early we heard back - that is Waikiki Hawaii. The ore rental place, 200m east offers the same for 50 dollars that is still outrageusly expensive. Food around the beach or at the beach - you pay 100usd for three portions and the selection was very small.
