This honey-coloured crescent of sand makes a lovely spot to enjoy life under a coconut tree. Swimming is possible although there are often red flags blowing on windy days, indicating strong currents. The motley assortment of beach dogs may try for a few laughs by snatching your unguarded shirt while you're swimming, but, overall, this is a peaceful spot to rest up for a few days.
