Great family beach, everyday is different as the sun rises, morning walks are a simple pleasure while on the island. Plenty of sun lounges for everyone and the pools near by

Sorry just seen this, probably too late but for others We chartered a boat and swam off that not off the shore and just to warn everyone needed stinger suits. Pretty mandatory for when we were there in February.
