Some of the most beautiful beaches I've every seen. You could easily spend the entire day swimming, floating or basking on the sand.

The beach is clean. It has access to banana, chair rides, wave runners and paddle boarding. A small area is marked off for swimmers and waders to stay safe.

This was one of the beaches our hotel shuttle took us too. The normally wet mangrove swamp was drying up due to a drought and the smell was overwhelmingly that of decaying detritus and swamp creatures. The sand was a bit courser than other beaches....More
