It was high tide when we went there but we still stepped on the beach. We thought the beach sand was rough. But when we look closer, it is a actually a shell beach.

Just a basic beach. No powdery sand more course ground shells. No convenient or close bath facilities so come dressed. I highly recommend buying a beach mat at one of the vendors for $8-10.

We came in monsoon season so we didn’t swim as it was raining but the view was spectacular overlooking the beach and there are many shops and restaurants and massage places. Great area would return here in the summer.
