  • This beach is beautiful! The waves aren't too rough. It's the only beach we found in this area that had no seaweed. Be cautious, lots of people walking around the beach selling stuff. There's free parking and there's a restaurant right on the beach.
  • It used to be awesome, now the charm is being sucked out of it by the new hotel being constructed. It now is a lost cause and will be overrun by more resorts in the future.
