  • This beach is a heaven, make sure you go there at least 1 day, we saw alot of monkeys
  • Lovely beach, clean, gets pretty hot for a nice dip. Nice scenery.
  • Very beautiful beach. Can enjoy it after walking through the park
  • White sands, beautiful water, lots of tourists and monkeys. The monkeys will straight up open your back pack and take your stuff. Do not leave anything unattended. I saw one take a lady's iPhone from inside her backpack, and she did not get it back. 🐒
