“A private beach”
Review of Leao Beach

Reviewed 27 April 2017

We arrived at the end of a bumpy dirt road and walked down to the hill to find that we were alone on a beautiful yellow-red sand beach that seemed to go on for days. While it was too rough to swim there and there were rocks piled at either end, it was glorious to be walking in such a special place.

The beach is entirely deserted and beautiful but signs warn of strong currents. Snorkelling is good.

Extremely beautiful being from the start. If you wait for the tide to come down you can even see these natural pools that are incrieble. Worth going

Lion Beach is one of the greatest beaches to see the views and enjoy different types of rocks ( at least 3) at the same place, not crowded it is a place for contemplation.

The beach is huge and empty, not far from souewest beach access. Turtles lay their eggs here as it is a huge beach. The currents and waves can be strong so be careful, on rough days good swimmers and or life jacket recommended. It is almost empty and goes on for a long way, perfect for a remote, beautiful, beach time...
