Clear, clean waters, pristine sand. We visited during the full moon so tide is a bit high and the sandbar only shows up very early in the morning. Be sure to check the tide table to get the most out of your visit.

3 hours at the sandbar wasn't enough! Lovely experience in Maniwaya! It can get crowded at noon time but most visitors leave within two hours.
