Lovely west facing beach, so a great spot to watch the sunset. We had cocktails and dinner at Bora Beach Club overlooking the beach. Not much shade on the beach.

This is a nice sandy beach with a few low key restaurants. The views are gorgeous and the water is very nice for swimming. It's perfect for those looking for a little quiet time. I hope it does not change too much because it felt...More
