  • Yes, the sand is like talcum powder. Yes, the water is is gentle, turquoise and beautiful, but there are 4 VALID reasons to visit somewhere else. #1. You are invading a neighborhood. Its NOT a park...

  • Beautiful beach, can get pretty busy, one of the best sunrise spots on the island.
  • Can't recommend enough! Amazing beach, short walk from the parking at the next beach down. A real hidden gem as it is in a residential area. Great view and pristine aqua water!
