I particularly love swimming from pier to pier. Also a perfect place To just laze around in the sun on a towel. Never seems too busy.

Beautiful beach. Very clean. Not overcrowded. Try not to be taken in by the guys selling bracelets on the beach.

Great beach and great snorkeling. You can get a snorkeling boat including seeing sea turtles. Best snorkeling I’ve done and was cheap!

We spent the day at the beach. Staff was very welcoming. People selling their stuff was a bummer. But couldn't ask for a better day.
