This was such a beautiful beach. The sand was perfect. It is very close to the resorts, so you can literally spend all day out here eating, snorkeling, etc. We even saw a turtle! I can't wait to come back here.

Not a very deep beach and it has a fast drop off. Have to watch the tide and waves as you can get caught and pulled out a ways without expecting it.

Awesome first thing in the morning, though it was very windy in the later morning... a little sand blasted. Also, be careful of the wasps! I was stung and ended up with an infection 😑

Great beach for hanging out with friends and family! Just watch out when walking along the shore. Waves can come up unannounced!

Right in front of living units with walking path to enjoy the view and get in some exercise. The ocean view is amazing as are the sunsets. Snorkeling to watch the fish is right in front of you.

There pavilions with restrooms at the beach park by the Westin villas resort. There is a board walk that runs for a couple of miles along the beach. Pick a spot And go swim. Have a great time

Definitely road construction so expect delays. The far north end of beach under beach refurbishment as well. Just take your time and expect delays.
