  • Love the beach! Clean and friendly! Great food on the beach with lots to choose from. Nobody bugging you to buy something.  more »
  • Warm waters, soft sand and great people/ Love the waether and the early morning rustlings of the monkeys in the trees. Such a great spot.  more »
  • We were there having our fish fried and as we ate it on the beach, there were many locals enjoying the coast. It was nice to get the local flavor away from the resort environment, something authentic.  more »
