  • Quiet. Clean , and Off the beaten path. Kind of a cold overcast day so didn’t get to spend much time there.

  • A great beach. Again, 5 star beaches must be truly spectacular. You people dish out 5 stars left and right lol It’s quiet. People are friendly. Waves are big and crash loudly which was cool. Sand is soft and great for kids and building sand castles. There is an area for driving your 4x4 onto the sand which is cool.
  • This is my favorite place on the Island. A lot of people make the mistake of going around noon but the beach is wonderful at sunset and early in the morning as well. If you are planning on going a few times I recommend getting the sticker to take your car on as it makes transporting things and people much easier. Be sure to remove air from your tires first or you WILL get stuck.
