This is the type of beach that you only dream of. Golden fine sand and crystal clear water. Safe to swim and great for snorkelling. Wow!

The beach is quite small and is limited in length by the rocks at each end but the sand is white and there is easy access into the sea.

What can I say it's a long beautiful beach . It's perfect for a nice long stroll in the sun with the emerald waters lapping or crashing onto the sand. It has a partially rocky shore in parts and snorkelling is quite good.

Great beach, watch out for rocks when entering the sea and great place to go snorkeling, the fish out in the coral love to eat bananas.
