Nice beach but full of trash because tourists just throw their trash anywhere. Shower rooms and rest rooms are also dirty. With the high number of guests, they don't even have enough shower rooms. However, snorkeling is nice. There are lots of fish because part...More

Three words to describe it, corals, marinel life and great sand. A unique paradise which is so much natural. Beach do have some rocks and quite not kid friendly but it's a small letdown. Definitely a great experience :-)

The beach is so cool during our current visit. Very fine sands and there are locals that sell general merchandise. There are tent and/or room rentals to stay and cottages too.
