  • Absolutely stunning white sands. Clear blue water and very high strong waves! Definitely would go back here  more »
  • This is the type of beach that you only dream of. Golden fine sand and crystal clear water. Safe to swim and great for snorkelling. Wow!  more »
  • The beach is quite small and is limited in length by the rocks at each end but the sand is white and there is easy access into the sea.  more »
