  • A beautiful beach. We went for the day as part of an excursion on a recent family trip. The water was beautiful and the landscape was breathtaking. It was a lovely and relaxing way to spend the day which was important for us as we had children with us. They had a great time and the adults were well relaxed as well.
  • Absolutely breathtaking. WOW! Can it get any better??!! Clear clear water, smooth sand- like no shells or rocks really, and super great for snorkeling! I saw a baby sting ray! Calm waters, mountains all around you. Lots of palm trees for shade and picnic tables for eating etc. This needs to be a stop on your beach excursions. :)
