Beautiful location, watch planes, swim in aqua colored water or just sit on the beach and enjoy the sun or watch the sun go down.

I didn't go in personally but my partner said it got deep quite quickly, it started off a little rough but able to swim when it got deeper, not suitable for small children. Hope this is helpful
