While the beach is scenic (despite an overabundance of litter), there is an elevated highway going up practically on the beach, spoiling forever the attraction.

Major road works very close to the beach mean that it's hard to recommend this, though the beach itself is fine and has the usual cafes.

This beach loses its charm because it is very dirty. You cannot swim but play with the waves on the edge

Loved going to the beach that was so close to where we stayed (Captain's Cabin). Serene beach , not crowded . Warm water and clean.

I wasn't a fan of this beach. You could sit there for the view I suppose but it gets very crowded. There was litter and a huge flyover is being built right next door. Instead you could go to Marari Beach which is not far down the road. Much nicer.

If looking to party or restaurant hopping not the beach for you. It is quiet and slow. Very limited choice to stay and even more limited to eat. Go here if need a break from noise and people. Town nearby has restaurants, backwater and fancy places. This place is to meditate and relax.
