Paradise it is. Big sandy beach with bright blue water. Little islands around it. It's so large that even when it is crowded, you can feel calm and alone, having your own space. Highly recommended!

After a long bumpy ride in a taxi trike we arrived in paradise. The beach is long and wide with clean sand and crystal clear water, uncrowded and breathtaking, a definite Robinson Crusoe moment. There are a couple of basic resorts and restaurants, with limited...More

There are no scooter rentals at the beach, only in town. But there are a van shuttle service and tricycle taxis on the beach that can take you back. EW
