Good beach near a few restaurants we stopped and grabbed a bite to each. Had lots of chairs and umbrellas for rent and was relatively calm the day went visited. Beach was good but did have some dead loose coral everywhere but no rocks.

I found the prices on a whole expensive, but local was a little cheaper. We paid $150 for a burger 🍔 fries and soda for two, this I think is expensive Hope this helps
