On the far-eastern coast, you'll find coral reefs in water so shallow that you can actually walk out to them. Along the beach are the Long Bay Hotel and the rambling Allegro Resort Pineapple Beach.

Nice beach with some decent snorkelling off the beach. Locals use beach but all seemed safe. Few shacks selling stuff....bit pricey but ok for presents.

Nice beach, clean clear water, not too much seaweed. Good snorkelling. Few shops and hotel bar that I presume would serve drinks.

my boyfriend and I drove here to go eat at Mama's which is AMAZING and I reviewed that as well. There is a small parking lot here. We came late in the day so there were people at the beach, but not many. The small...More

Long Bay is fine, the sand is nice and you can actually see some fishes if you snorkel. But there are too many other guests. The first time we were there people put out huge loudspeakers and drowned us with music. Not our favourite beach.
