Beach was nice but busy. In the evening only the hotel and a couple of local bars for entertainment. I like to be able to walk to different places bit to far out from town for me.

The beach is separated into two main sections. Public and hotel. The Radisson sits impressively atop the cliffs above the crystal clear turquoise waters of Golden sands beach. Fine grains of yellow sand and a fairly warm temperature to the water make this place amazing...More
