Nice beach area. Nice restaurants near by. Little secluded from the ocean, especially with all of the boats moored in the harbor. Great white sand.
Great beach easily accessible by bus or car. Plenty of dirt road to park. Full sunshine so put out those sunscreen behind the windshield! Shallow beach, low waves usually. Ideally suited for families with small kids. Playground present. Fun activities for older children and adults. Jet skis, kayaks, catamaran, etc. Diving school too. 2 bars and restaurants. And tucked between two good hotels. Lolo in the parking lot near the street so no reason to go anywhere except maybe the bank nearby to get cash.
