While this appears to be a safe place during the day, by late afternoon not so much. We met a girl who had just been attacked on the beach and it was only about 5 pm. There are better places to go.

There is absolutly no Security on this beach and tourist are more or less bound to be robbed by the gangs that stay around the restaurant area. Stay away, there are other beaches that are better and more secure.

Nice beach for sunset and pictures of reggae night venue, but very very dangerous. Watchout!
