    We didn't stay here but were a group of 9 including 3 children. We absolutely loved the place. It's a quiet spot with a shaded beach area. Food and staff is great! Their toilets are clean and there are no hawkers to harass you.

    There is a bath possible in front of our ROCKSIDE CABANAS HOTEL because this area is protected from a reef. At othe beaches can be dangerous because the sea can be rough.
