I think it is one of the better beaches for an evening out as it is not so crowded and has a good choice of shacks to sit and relax after a swim or walk.

A lovely strip of beach, away from the busy. Great shacks to eat and drink at, and in the morning and evenings, you get to see the fisherman bring in the fish. A great area!

Not crowded specially the stretch near Taj exotica; visit at different times for different experiences. Awesome sunset. Great shacks. The side near Royal Palms is crowded but good for a one time visit. Pedros is great food and the terrace view is awesome at dusk.
