Lovely beach. Offers a bit of snorkeling if you are bored though nothing spectacular. Probably because of Ramadan so we had the whole beach to ourselves from morning till late afternoon! Visit sunset beach too which is also nice.

We had to go through a little forest to get here. But the access was so easy to get to this beach. It was a lovely beach with clear water and white sands. The locals was super friendly and polite.
