Although one may contemplate some nice views of the islands and Chalong Bay, the beach can hardly be considered as good. The bottom of the sea is very slimy, the waters are shallow and subject to frequent low tides. The beach itself is rather dirty...More

Friendship Beach is a great little hidden spot to grab a bite to eat and have some drinks. Very friendly service and great atmosphere.

The view is great and there are not a lot of options in that area. That's probably why they don't make efforts for what they serve. The food was AWFUL and my pina colada had no alcohol whatsoever.
