Visited on fairly overcast morning with some dark clouds overhead, so probably not the best conditions for seeing great colours either in or out of the water. It wasn’t a weekend, so the car park wasn’t very busy compared to Grote Knip beach which we visited on a Sunday. It’s smaller than Grote Knip beach but still in a sheltered... More

Relaxing beach, you'll find some shadows under palm trees. Water is beautiful and if you get closer to the rocks on the sides you'll see beautiful tropical fishes in clear water. Recommended!

You can hang out on the beach, snorkel or dive. There is also a snack shack. The dive Republic is here and can provide you with rentals or ownership. There is shade and parking. It's a fun spot but like every spot we have been to, the trash is there.

We visited this beach twice, arranged our diving tour and also rented snorkel gear to take with us during our trip. Our diving experience was great, we were first time divers and got to see a whole bunch of awesome sea life, our instructor was great and patient. We took in the sunset here as well, they have a snack... More

Beach is nice and the restaurant is convenient but the food is all fried. Swimming here is a test on your feet if you do not have water shoes, very rocky and tons of coral. If you can get out in the water its a great place to snorkel.

Popular free beach near where we were staying, easy to get to from the church that dominates the view. Lots of rocks and coral to get over but not dangerous in any way. Cheap eats and drinks at the beach bar, which accepts USD.

Daaibooi is a great beach if you're looking for something a little more low-key than nearby beaches like Cas Abou and Porto Mari. It's much quieter and less touristy, which we definitely preferred. The snack is basic, but has the essentials and the food is good. There are clean bathrooms and you can rent chairs for a decent price ($4... More

Not the best place to do a shore dive but certainly one to not forget. Very very beautiful underwater. it seems that this might not be the first place where local diving schools go to, because we did not see any other diver in the 4 times we visited. Despite the long swim out to get to the drop we... More

This beach is free with minimal amenities. However, the snorkeling is great, especially to the right- good coral and lots of fish.
