Came here from our trek through the jungle, well worth the trip as this beach is clean and unspoilt. Lovely views and very peaceful. Can take about 2 hours through the jungle but like a small piece of private paradise if you time it right.

Lovely crystal sand although it does get very hot to walk on! Plenty of tables to have picnics at, lots of shade. Turtle sanctuary was cute but small. A few 2 day old hatchlings & a pair of older turtles to see. Only worth coming...More
