  • Very quiet, small beach. The view is awesome, and there is a sense of serenity. This is a very quiet beach with little traffic, at least when we were there in March.  more »
  • Went for a swim here a few times and to watch the sun set. The water was a beautiful blue colour, clear and warm. Nice sand beach and was not too busy when we were there.  more »
