White beach with restaurants and hotels aligned. Lots of motorized boats used by divers during their dives. They are anchored here too. Excellent sunset and best to view the reflection of lights from the other viewpoint to the restaurants at dinner time.

Nice beach to stroll along or relax at one of the restos or bar areas. Good views out to sea. You can swim here but it's shallow in parts plus many boats about. Busiest area of Mala Island.

Not the place to swim in but great place to hang out. There are restos and bars here but only Ocean Vida is packed. Others have no customers at all.
