Very relaxing, not too crowded. There was massage and restrooms on the beach if I recall correctly. I highly recommend.

The beach is absolutely amazing. The beach offers plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The water is break taking. The restaurant however was very disappointing. The restaurant offers perfect views of the ocean in an open air sitting area. The servers were extremely slow, and they...More

I loved this beach. It is very beautiful with very nice chairs in shade--either under trees or the umbrellas. The fish we saw here while snorkeling were amazing. The showers are free, there is a foot bath to rinse off as you leave, the snack...More

We were told about this beach by our host at Jan Kok Lodges. It did not disappoint. The water was unbelievably clear, making it a good place for snorkeling. There is plenty of shade with a nominal charge for beach privilege and lounge. The parking...More

As long as you are not too adventurous with what you order; i think you will be happy. A Burger for example is hard to screw up here and has been pretty consistent.

Playa Porto Mari is a comfortable beach. We enjoyed snorkeling along the long shoreline. The man-made reef structures allow for seeing a variety of fish.

Not sure but probably at least a 40 min journey and taxis seem expensive so worth it only if you want to see the pigs, otherwise I'd recommend mambo or another closer beach in more reasonable during distance.
