  • This beach is very clean and not crowded, at least for the week we were there. Lots of sunset watchers, which is fun.  more »
  • We stopped here because the guidebooks all told us the snorkeling was good here. We saw so many incredible fish and it was really easy to get in and out of the water. The beach had quite a few people ...  more »

  • Great beach for families, there's a great shore break to protect you from surf, surprisingly good snorkeling although almost no coral (plenty of fish though). There's a large sandy area that's 0-18 inches deep - perfect for toddler beach goers. There are other beaches nearby that are great for older swimmers. We also found the lifeguard to be VERY professional - and knowledgeable about the sea life found on the beach. There's even grass and shade nearby to get out of the sun. Its an excellent beach although it can get a bit crowded on the sand. There are restrooms available in the park right off the beach (They are not clean - but not disgusting either. They ARE convenient).
  • Scenic sandy beach includes facilities that include restrooms and outside shower. Lots of grass area for playing Frisbee and picnicking.
  • Beautiful beach! Great for snorkeling, nice shops across street for souveneirs, food, shaved ice, with friendly people.
  • Nice Beach, lifeguards on duty, nice little swim area for kids, showers and bathrooms. Good for tourists.
  • The park seems clean enough and the water is nice and a great place to snorkel for starters I would have to say that the place needs more signs for the sea turtles that come on the shore to sun bathe
