This beach is great, clean and picturesque. At low tide you can walk out really far and wade knee deep to see lots of sting rays. From this point you can also snorkel out a little further to see massive turtles which are very friendly...More

Hi Bangle, Tide times change by an hour each day so it will depend on the cycle as to when high tide is, which is displayed on our board each day next to the beach hut. Wait three days and its three hours later etc....More

Nice beach and easy walk from most of the hotels. Bit rocky at low tide - not a problem but worth having beach shoes if you want to wade out at low tide

Best beach on the island. Many families on the beach & in the pools everyday. It has a lifesaver and offers some water sports for the active people. Laid back atmosphere with restaurants & bars too.

good for walking, swimming and sailing in the sun all day and good a high or low tide, suggest reef shoe be worn in walking around at high tide

Okay, not everyone may agree with this, but in my opinion, it is much more fun to explore the beach when it is low tide.

We took out kayaks and SUP’s as they were included in the deal with put accommodation. No bookings necessary and times were dictated to by the tides. Beach is average but. Pleasant place to relax.

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.
