(4.5/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)

  • The markets along the beach on Sunday night were fun to see. Anything from jewellery to popcorn. The beach is a good beach and very busy, even at night time. Lots of families around enjoying surfers. 
  • It's a beautiful beach. Water colors are also beautiful, and are well received the impression that the Administration is clean.
