  • Access difficult but worthwhile come and enjoy one of the beaches more wild and natural in the North of the island. Bit crowded and with a couple of beach bars for eating fried fish and plantains.

  • This beach is a well kept secret. One of our favorite beaches to go to. Very secluded. Has never been busy when we are there.  more »
  • Get to this beach worth road which has some challenges - as crossing a river without bridge yet. It is a quiet beach with very good and simple places to eat. When it is not in veda, don't miss the lobster!
