Wide beaches of white silky sand fringed by coconut palms. Used by tourists and local people so there is a good atmosphere, but not busy or noisy. The water goes out a long way at low tide, but then there's the pleasure of rock pooling. Wonderful shells, lots of seaweed which is collected by local women and children for processing at a nearby centre. At high tide the water is great for swimming - salty and warm. Not great for snorkelling. I cried on the day that I had to leave the beach.
