  • Great beach, amazing water and fantastic people. There's food and drink to buy at the restaurants. Parking is free. There are bathrooms.

There are tour boats that can be hired to take you to islands nearby. People often ride jet skis so that does kick up the wake a bit too if you're swimming etc. There is a cave high up in the rocks on the west side but I didn't venture in because it was a steep and rocky climb - I didn't have the right shoes. Have fun!
