This beach is so pristine it looks like a photshopped ad. I literally could not believe it was real. It was a bit expensive to get to but definitely worth it.

Great beach and awesome experience! The sand is really as white and the water is as clear as in all pictures! Unfortunately swimming was only possible in wet suits because of the stingers. Still absolutely recommendable!
