Many people complain about the crowded beaches but my answer is that go early then you won't have any complain.

Beautiful beach but extortionate prices! Drinks are 3/4 times more expensive. There is one nice restaurant call the grande I think but it closes at 530pm.

This used to be the more quiet beach, not anymore. A never ending line of bamboo beds lining the shore, selling small fries for 350 or Red Horse for 500 Pesos. Bring your own towel and stay clear of the touts, then you can still enjoy this area

when you want relax a little bit off the mainstream, go there. Also good for snorkling, water is not that shallow for small kids. Some booth for snacks, drinks and grilled fish

This is a gorgeous beach and much less crowded than White Beach. It used to be filled with Puka shells but we don't see them anymore. I hear you can still find them at the far end of the beach. This is a definite must stop while on a boat tour from White Beach.
