  • He went here to surf. We are amateurs and read that the surf here is good for that. When we got there we are more than pleased. Even though it's next to a big Resort the beach was not too packed and they had a lot of activities going on which made the visit fun. The view is really nice. The reason why I didn't give five is because of all the helicopters that fly by so if you want to relax, choose a different Beach.
  • Nice relaxing locations, have gone several times:J_
