Beautiful beach with sober crowd and good food nearby. However not very clean and sometimes little crowded. Sea near beach not very deep and very cosy. At little far distance feet feels some uneasy substances at bottom.

Nice beach.
Unfortunately there is no reef ( actually there was one but is dead ) .
Still if you go beyond the pole from the middle of the bay you will find clear water, not so deep , and aslo some colored fish swiming around what was at some point a coral reef.

Luckily there are some trees that you may use as a sun shade .

Practically that is the only beach tourists can use .

Nice beach... little bit of crowds. the local laws only allow bikinis on this beach. Water has the many shades of blue. This beach is very beautiful, with blue water and white sand.

Beach itself is ok but walking along there is lots of litter and my gf found pieces of broken glass nearby where kids were playing. Not surprisingly the Kaani people didn't care when we mentioned it to them. Be careful.

This beach was very clean but a bit small. But it was better than the other beaches. It would be better if they add more swings there because everyone wanted to sit on the swing but as there was only one, many had to wait for a very long time for their turn. They also provided candle light dinners at the beach but it wasn’t very private. They maintained the beach very well.

Clear crystal blue water with white warm sand and corals and small crabs. Swimming is allowed only at Bikini Beach but this beach is really enough
