My wife and I went here twice to watch the windsurfers and just relax. This is a very casual place that pretty just caters to windsurfers. But it was fun to sit at the beach front bar and have lunch and drinks. Great funky place...More

A gem of a site! We didn't go to windsurf but just to relax. You can walk hundreds of meters in half a meter of water, snorkel, swim, sun tan, paddle board, sky is the limit! Beautiful beach and pristine waters!

What a great location to come and sit and relax to watch the wind surfers do their stuff. There is also a beach right near by where you can walk and continue watching the wind surfers.
