We were amazed that there were only about 6 people on this beautiful beach. The water was calm and clear, sandy not rocky. We watched pelicans diving for fish and relaxed in the sea for a couple of hours. Much nicer beach than Palm Beach...More

We stopped here for a short time, after visiting Baby Beach. The beach wasn't very crowded at all, but it was later in the day. The beach was pretty big with plenty of space to spread out, but it wasn't as nice as Baby Beach....More

There's not much there, but that's the charm of the place. If you don't like crowds and noise, this is a beach you should try. Water is warm and good for paddling or swimming. Few people, no facilities, ample parking space right next to the...More

The beach is right next to the more crowded baby beach and offers a lot of shade with the little huts. There are more fish to see than at baby beach so bring snorkeling gear!

Can't go wrong here. Great for clear water and relaxation. Not as much sea life to experience, but very nice.

Stopped here after Baby Beach. It's a decent beach, but the refinery ruins the view. Loved the old boats anchored here!

Yes, the oil refinery is to your right. But, you don't have to position yourself to even have the refinery in your line of sight. We just popped by to look at the beach and were happily surprised to see how quiet it was: it...More

This is a smaller average beach. And yes the views are not so nice. It's an option if you're in that area of the island. And I do think it's more for locals and they probably appreciate having somewhere to go without so many tourists...More
