The perfect place to relax. It is a calm and not crowd beach. It is a good place for kids. Totally recommend it.

Being quite shallow and with no waves, the water is very warm. Lovely beach to try out kayaking and stand up paddle boarding without the added challenge of dealing with waves. Also nice to do snorkelling by the coral reef.

Dirty and noisy and ugly, don’t bother going there. The quad ride is short and not fun at all, basically a rip off.
