Such a peaceful and calm place to be. The planes come down so low you can wave to the pilot. It is very pristine and the white sand made it an ideal place to hang out and have a dip.

Dawn Beach is bit on the rough side with lots of seaweed and strong waves coming in. During my visit it was more rough than normal because of an expecting storm. The Dawn Beach at Mr. Busby was completely gone and cluttered with seaweed. The...More

Shame about the seaweed. This is normally a lovely beach but covered in seaweed at the moment. Looks like we will not be able to sunbathe on the beach this holiday. This is a shame as it is usually great with sun beds no parasols....More

We stay on this beach due to the incredible resort it sits on. Otherwise, we'd never step foot on this beach at all. It smells HORRIBLE with all the seaweed that is uncontrollable. The area has great restaurants however, so that's a plus. But other...More

Dawn Beach is a beautiful beach, but the Westin Hotel takes up most of it. We were there in the evening during off-season, so we didn't have any issues, but the entire beach had Westin Hotel beach chairs on it, and we were told that...More
