This beach is not good for your children because the waves are huge and the shore is very steep. The beach is immediately sloping into an abyss. I think this beach is only good for surfers. But the beach is not that crowded, it is...More

Dahican Beach is very beautiful but, sadly, the time we went there the water was very flat and the partner couldn't go surfing. Most of the resorts are rather pricey (not so much if you go there in groups). You can camp out at Amihan...More
