Too rough for swimming, snorkeling or young children Older kids with small boards for body surfing. Waves are high as this is the Atlantic.

Bring suntan lotion. This beach is beautiful although occasionally gets a little rough. But great for body surfing and for children in the shallows

great service for lunch/drinks! Watching the waves crash the cliffs or cliff walking if you are so inclined is perfect.

It's kinda hard to deny this beach the ranking it has as one of the top 10 beaches in the world with it's beautiful waters and spectacular views. Be sure to stop by and try the Rihanna cocktail from bartender Andrew 🍹🍹🍹🍹

Great beach. Beautiful blue ocean. Ocean is a bit rough and the waves are high, but lots of fun. Great for boogie boarding. Seaweed lining the beach. Lots to explore. Restaurant/bar on the beach. Great cocktails.

Inaccessible from the hotel unless you’re a guest. There’s public access to the east of the hotel grounds though. Park up near the roundabout. Use the concrete stepping stones to access the beach. Crystal clear water and powder white sand. Huge waves too. Can feel...More

About half an hour by car or a couple of hours by bus with transfers and such. if you don't have a car you are probably better off arranging for a taxi with your hotel.
