We were at Ravenala and the beach is not turquoise because of the river flowing into it, however, if you walk 5 to 10 minutes around the the next resort, you find this incredible beach. Very few people - Chrystal clear water - Amazing snorkeling!

The beach is nice with lots of water sports. There were a lot of water activities that one can participate in. These include diving, snorkelling, fishing, horse riding, banana boat ride, clear glass fish viewing and many more

Nice public beach with good sand be careful in water since there are spiky creatures. Good place to visit with kids.

As there were all inclusive resorts here dotted around the beach, we did not see any restaurants apart from the ones linked to the hotels.
