This is a beautiful beach with crystal clear waters and great views. Well worth a visit for a short stop off or spend the whole day with a picnic and bottle of wine!

The only way to get there is by catamaran from a cruise company or by a private boat. If you go with a cruise company, you will have the chance to visit a few of the nearby islands on the same day so it is definitely worth the deal in my opinion. The beach is great, the sand is snow... More
