  • I occasionally catch photos of this beach and wonder at home truly spectacular it was. I have travelled extensively and never seen anything so beautiful, or so exclusive. It's bewilderingly beautiful.  more »
  • In our opinion, the best beach on the island. white sand, blue water and it is poorly populated. stayed overnight at the camp. Not far from the town, where in the morning visited the local fish market, and later went to sea to observe dolphins!
