A really nice beach. Lots to do such as snorkelling, stand up paddle boarding, sailing etc (most are free if you stay in a select hotel on the island).

A small but picturesque beach offering seating and shade under the palm trees. A little rough on the feet near the waters edge with coral and stone so wetsuit shoes are helpful. Nice place for a visit.

From 7am until 11am you can hire the paddle boards & kayaks & catamarans. Then when the tide goes out you can walk out to the rock pools, and to the edge of the reef.

Very clean and well maintained beach... Can do heaps here or nothing, lots of non motorised water sports on offer or just lay back and enjoy the spectacular views...

Sorry just seen this, probably too late but for others We chartered a boat and swam off that not off the shore and just to warn everyone needed stinger suits. Pretty mandatory for when we were there in February.
