Incredible secluded beach with views of mountains and dense forests on the hillside coming right down to the beach. Caves to exploring little rocky islands. Perfect for snorkelling, swimming, with eateries right by the beach.

Beach is accessible direct from the hotel and is clean. Water was cold (in May) but a couple of people braved it. No shops so no rubbish strewn about, nice sun trap and sheltered from the wind.
