Beautiful pebble beach, clean and so peaceful. Anyone could visit here, go swimming with family and friends with cheap cottages or rather stay here for few days. There's a beach Hotel near the area, don't worry :)

They cook good food and staffs are very friendly. The place is good for relaxing, a bit pricy but its worth. You can also do a hike for 380 steps and reach the other side of the mountain.

Interesting geological formation. Would be good to know the definitive way in which it was formed. We hired the hotel van from the hotel and enjoy a nice afternoon of sight seeing.

Smooth rocks, great scene, and offers a view of the sunset. Cottages are okay. Beside a fishing village where you could try to approach arriving bangkas to buy their freshly caught seafood.
