In keeping with the look of the place, the beachside restaurants' thatched roofs add to the picture-perfect beach. If you're feeling adventurous, you can always book a banana boat or jet ski ride. An array of concession stalls sell snacks, souvenirs, and beach toys. Visitors have reported some unwanted crocodile sightings, so stay aware.
