  • relatively uncrowded. decent off shore snorkeling. clear yet kind of cloudy waters. free (?) seats with umbrella behind ocean spa hotel. this is a cute lil public beach between many boat docks. i was debating between a 4 and 5 star rating, and decided to go with 4. while this is a nice beach, it isn’t absolutely breath taking like some others.

  • Place was ugly. There was trash in the water and beer bottles and the bars are like a few steps away from the beach hence the beer bottle in the sand + water. Even though the water was clear, the place was just ugly and the drunk folks did not help the situation (enviormentally and also didn't make it a comfortable atmosphere). ALSO! my sandals got stolen here so do watch for your stuff even your sandals. You can't trust nobody

  • Beach looks nice but pretty crowded

  • Beautiful beach, ideal for swimming and snorkeling, there are small stalls that sell good food, a self-service store and a fun atmosphere with people and music.

  • This is an Ok beach with many options to drink and eat. The downside is that the shore has many rocks that are not easy to see when you are in the water
