We love this beach when the sun shines. On our third visit it rained most of the day and we were drenched because there is little to no shelter. On a positive note the sand is sooo fine! And sooo white it takes your breath...More

That soft cold white sand between your toes is pure bliss. This magical place is only accesable by boat, helicopter or seaplane. If you are in te region it is a bucket list item you must tick off your list.
