We stayed in Paradisus in July of 2018. The beach was horrible full of seaweed and bad smell. I was looking for a good beach to go to. Our concierge recommended Macao beach. We were not disappointed. Water was very good with good amount of...More

We visited Macao Beach as part of an Outback Adventure. The beach itself was gorgeous, but the area walking to the beach was dirty. Lots of trash and that takes away from its beauty. I would still go back, but I hope it gets cleaned...More

This beach is beautiful. Crisp clear water. There are life guards on duty and water equipment to rent. Nice beach to visit.

Beautiful beach and water. More of a local feel than the resort beach but stay away from the brown sand (horseback riding excursion uses this beach too)!

Really amazing beach with locals roaming around...the atmosphere is chilled... yes there are lots of tourists at one time and yes there are locals trying to sell souvenirs but you find that on any public beach... politely say no and move on...

Beautiful beach with a lot of locals. Be prepared to be approached by all sorts of vendors from fruits to jewelery to pics with animals. Not pushy though. The restaurants on the beach will bring a table out to your sunbeds and let you dine...More

Macao beach is very beautiful. White sand, clear blue water that feels amazing. It would be so much better if they would clear off all the vendors. There are too many of them and some of them are a little scary. I understand the economy...More
