We drove from Jolly Beach resort to here and it only took about 5 minutes. Love how quiet this beach is in the morning. There is a restaurant and a small coconut water vendor on the beach. So I assume it'll get busier once the...More

Mostly an empty beach (unless a cruise ship is in ) but then they tend to be at the beach bar . Its a long sandy beach but great for shelling too.
