  • The water was crystal clear and the beach was very clean! I was surprised how little sand there was here but I was here for the water and waves! Snorkeling was awesome just beyond the rock wall...

  • This is a very busy beach, but also beautiful. There is an abundance of things to do here and swimming is very safe. Loved every second of it.
