I loved this beach, the weather was perfect and people friendly, my number one beach, I was only there four days but spent all my time on the beach in the clothing optional section. Would go back and I don't say that very often.

Well maintained walk along the beach. Some good bars and restaurants to be found here. Ignore the street sales people as they are not pushy and only want to make a living. Nothing wrong with that. Can recommend for a alternative place to walk instead...More

Clean, large and popular beach. Nice to spend the day with friends and family. Not crowded and the best in the whole Island. Better on weekdays.
