The Beach

The turquoise waters are framed by multicolored rocks that jut out into the ocean. The water is some of the clearest around. There is always a gentle sea breeze that rocks the tropical vegetation. The rock cliffs on either side of this beach have created a swimming pool with calm warm waters. The beach does however, drop off quickly and the water is much cooler out towards the ends of the rocks. Because of the gentle waters families enjoy visiting this beach.


At the bottom of the trail is a small kiosk to purchase drinks and snack. Their menu consists of grilled cheese on a stick, seafood, coconuts and all types of drinks. There are some umbrellas for public use close to the snack shop. Other than this, there are no other amenities. Beach goers will have to travel back up the footpath and past all the mansions to find restaurants, bars, shops and cafes.
