Dirty beach

Beach is ok. Went to the side that you can sneak in to so it's free. The sand is filled with trash. The water is great though.

We tried both and this location was infinitely better. Great snorkelling is on offer, which is not the case at Frenchmans

We stopped in late in the day on our way to the Resort. The guy mumbled to just park and we would talk money later after I specifically asked him how much was the admission. We stayed maybe 15 or 20 minutes wading along the beach. There was trash mixed in with the sea weeds and coconut husks both in... More

There is a small fee to get onto this beach, but it's worth the money to sit on a clean beach. It has a lifeguard on duty and a small restaurant with cold beverages. There are a couple of Kayaks available to rent as well as a wind surf board we used as a SUP board. Monkey island is just... More

We got there early in the morning (10am - apparently early by the local standard:) and the beech was a mess - tons of garbage and everything else you could imagine just thrown out the sea. There were two local guys "working" but as soon as they collected the entrance ticket they resumed resting instead of coping with the trash...... More

This is an easy place to get to. The swimming is good here. I understand a lot of the land around has been bought and a bigger, nicer beach is coming.

Of all the beaches we visited, this one seemed to have the biggest problem with trash. Also there was a charge to visit here whereas other beaches only charged for chairs or asked a donation for maintenance. It is a beautiful view though.

The beach is a lovely one and the water is very warm and invigorating. The club house is also clean and refreshments are available. The main problems are: the garbage strewn along the length of the beach including foliage, cleaning of the beach is very limited; the entry fee is undeserved given the state of the beach. There is also... More
