This beach is quite large with few vendors. The majority of vendors are those trying to sell you excursions. It's unlikely they will approach you once you've been there a couple of days. If you haven't prepaid for an excursion through your airline I would...More

Best beach on the island, stunning colour of the water, quite safe for children. Some beach trips start from here. Traders do come along but just say no and they move on.

When cruise ships are in, this can get overrun, even though it is quite a long stretch. Some of the smaller beaches are nicer because of this, although when it is less crowded it is lovely.
