Just beautiful! Minimal waves and clear water. Not much else to say. 5 star! Great for small kids. There is the big sandbags on some of the beach to try and retain the accommodation.

Just magnificent spot to swim or walk along the perfect golden sands or sit in the tropical evening enjoying another glorious sunset over the Keppel island bay. Foot ware optional and observing the sun worshipers it is clear swimwear tops are optional too.

Walking east from the resort allows you to have the beach to yourself (or share with few others). Although suffering from erosion near the resort, as you move further up the beach, the sand has not been effected. We enjoyed using the paddle boards here...More

Nice beach that was deserted when we visited in Winter School Holidays. It was lovely, yachts out in the distance and no one else on the beach to be seen. Great relaxing beach to have a stroll. If you have entered the beach via the...More
