Stopped here for a swim, and wasn't disappointed! Te water is crystal clear, and the sand is brilliantly white, and feels like 'powder; underfoot. A definite must see when on Santo!

One of the most stunning breath taking secrets on earth with its crystal clear blue waters and the whitest sand I have ever seen.

Beautiful beach with a small jetty. It is really nice and away from it all. Clear water and very calm and sheltered. Lovely

Great beach with wonderful warm water, soft coral sand and fantastic views. Unfortunately totally spoiled by the ramshackle market stalls and the horrendously bright yellow, ugly, toilet block. Boy can we humans really ruin a beauty spot! Be prepared to donate to the locals when...More

We stopped here on our cruise, we swam in the pristine waters and soaked up the sun, we enjoyed the simplicity of the island. Lots of little markets offering small trinkets for sale, you can buy soft drinks and basic food. Very friendly and simplistic.
