We visited this beach twice, arranged our diving tour and also rented snorkel gear to take with us during our trip. Our diving experience was great, we were first time divers and got to see a whole bunch of awesome sea life, our instructor was great and patient. We took in the sunset here as well, they have a snack... More

Beach is nice and the restaurant is convenient but the food is all fried. Swimming here is a test on your feet if you do not have water shoes, very rocky and tons of coral. If you can get out in the water its a great place to snorkel.

Popular free beach near where we were staying, easy to get to from the church that dominates the view. Lots of rocks and coral to get over but not dangerous in any way. Cheap eats and drinks at the beach bar, which accepts USD.

Daaibooi is a great beach if you're looking for something a little more low-key than nearby beaches like Cas Abou and Porto Mari. It's much quieter and less touristy, which we definitely preferred. The snack is basic, but has the essentials and the food is good. There are clean bathrooms and you can rent chairs for a decent price ($4... More

Not the best place to do a shore dive but certainly one to not forget. Very very beautiful underwater. it seems that this might not be the first place where local diving schools go to, because we did not see any other diver in the 4 times we visited. Despite the long swim out to get to the drop we... More

This beach is free with minimal amenities. However, the snorkeling is great, especially to the right- good coral and lots of fish.

After hearing so much about this beach we had to pay it a visit. Looks beautiful and it is not overly busy. But - lots of broken coral at the shoreline so water shoes were a must. Also lots of large rocks/boulders for several feet going into the water which made it very difficult to walk to get into the... More

This is definitely one of the nicest beaches to visit because it is in a nice cozy bay surrounded by rocks and good for snorkling also. Thus not a full service beach although there is a snack where they have food. Very popular is the Friet. Be in time otherwise you don't have a place under the big palapas. You... More

The beach is quite calm, located in the West part of the island. There is only one tent where you can buy small meals and drink. The sole of the beach is mainly composed of stones, but there is place to rest in the sun. Snorkelling in Daabooi is pretty good and sunset is just amazing!
