Panorama | Review | Map
This was a lovely beach; sandy, with coves and great rocks. It was right next to a water park with slides, chutes and rides, on one side and the marina with whale watching trips on the other.
There were a couple of cafes and a promenade running behind the beach along to the water park from the hotel.
There seemed to be signs of development here: behind the hotel, building work had started, which looked to us as though it might be apartments. This was one of the few places we visited, which had concessions to tourists and would make an ideal holiday destination. The trouble is, after spending a couple of weeks on the island, we loved it the way it was and didn't really want any tourist-style developments. Its charm lay partly in the fact that there weren't any!
