Nice sand! Cleaned regularly and Galley Bay has Security Guards posted. Sandy bottom ocean floor. May see a movie star strutting along the beach!

there is literally nothing except vendors hiding in the bush and once they see human life they come out and try to sell you whatever they have. Hope that helps
