The beach is perfect. Had a very memorable stay in this wonderful island. The white sand, clear water and even had the chance to watch and swim with the fishes. The whole family enjoyed the experience we had. You must try it too.

As a beach goer, I found this beach as a little heaven on earth. A great spot for chilling and sun bathing. Go swim to the calm beach, playing with fishes or doing some water sports. 3 hours trip on island is never enough

You could snorkel, but the water is not very clear and little bit choppy! You could also go to the village where there is a nice Muslim family restaurant (if you want) and swim at the beach!
