Just magnificent spot to swim or walk along the perfect golden sands or sit in the tropical evening enjoying another glorious sunset over the Keppel island bay. Foot ware optional and observing the sun worshipers it is clear swimwear tops are optional too.

The beach was beautiful but it was the busiest of the 7 beaches we visited on GKI. Quite a few residences backed onto it so it was easy access for them. It was hardest hit by the cyclone and there was clean up work in...More

This is the closest beach to the Hideaway. Depending on wind direction , its a quiet , calm , sandy paradise for the kids to have fun. Sunset views to die for,

Nice beach for hiring some equipment and trying a water-based activity. My daughter and I tried stand-up paddle boarding. We enjoyed it.
