This beach is only accessible by boat. There are some trails through the dense bush that lead you up to the highest point of the island. I really recommend this place.

You can only entry by boat, I'd recommend taking an early one, for it's a Navy controlled area and has a 300 visitors limit. The water is amazing and everything is very well preserved. Has no vendors in site, so better bring snacks
