Der Strand an sich ist sehr schön, leider ist dieser so überlaufen. Grund sind natürlich die wunderschönen Schildkröten. Diese werden jedoch leider ständig umlagert, angefüttert, bedrängt und betouche... more »The beach itself is very nice, unfortunately it is so crowded. The reason, of course, is the beautiful turtles. Unfortunately, however, these are constantly surrounded, fed, harassed and touched. The "watchman" scolds when he sees that Touris lift up the poor animals, but this seems very hypocritical to me, since it is allowed how these animals are harassed and even food is sold. We came to snorkel, which was sometimes made difficult, because the turtles were also pursued until further out. I often had almost a foot in my face. Ruthless behaviour. The coral reef is unfortunately already more or less dead, but we could see some beautiful fish and even a small reef shark.
Awesome place to experience beauty of a sunset Plenty of beach side restaurants , pubs and resorts are there. The vibrant colours of sky make your eyes and mind excited.
A great place for a day out. The people a very nice the water is calm and it's great for paddling or swimming. People of all age groups can have fun here. And if you need refreshments there's a mobile ice cream stall right on the beach. Glass-bottom boats, scuba diving services can be hired from the main road about 20m away.
