The beach was swarming with tourists but it hardly mattered as there are lots to do and enjoy here. Experienced parasailing (accompanied by a local guide) and it was an exhilarating experience. The beach also has places where you can sit and relax. Get a pedicure done, enjoy tender coconut juice while relaxing. The roadside across the beach has stalls selling clothes, caps, mementos among the other things. Tip: Was travelling with a group of friends so got a very good deal with rates for parasailing after bargaining with the guys there.

What a filthy beach ! Plastic bottles discarded by beach users . No bins on the beach . Locals continue to smoke cigarettes on the beach . Police don't care about them . But if a foreigner lights up for a smoke - they arrive in force and demand money - why , because you are a FALANG , a foreign tourist who will have MONEY ! The locals will not have money , so it's not worth the effort of getting out of the Airconditioned Police car to arrest them .
The water is polluted and is a grey colour , sewage regularly overflows into the bay, when it rains all the drain effluent is washed into the sea . It truly stinks !
This beach would NEVER get a blue flag award .
Those who say it is a clean Tourist Beach are lying through their teeth .
The deckchair operators on the beach are prohibited from putting out their tables and chairs every Wednesday , this is supposed to be the " Deep clean day " for their allocated pitch . Not the case , They all take the day off , I strategically placed a piece of paper ( which I later picked up and disposed of properly ) it was still there after 9 days .
All these vendors want is your money , they do not care about anything else .
The enforcement authority for annoying beach vendors , smoking on the beach , littering and polluting the beach area is a complete joke .
If you want a Beach Holiday with children , you would be cleaner and safer elsewhere .

I wouldn't step a foot into this water and wouldn't lay on this "beach". I very much like rats as all other beings, but that's no reason to share sand with them, or stray dogs, or fumes of the endless boats and cars right beside you. Dirty, stinky, do not recommend

A good place, though crowded! The number of tourists that flock here is amazing! Number of boats that keep ferrying tourist do cause pollution! So if you looking for peace and tranquility at beach, this is not for you. Good for water sports ...
