Yes, it is busy, but, that is part of its charm. Plenty of quiet beaches on the Island. Go to Muri Beach for the fun!

Muri Lagoon is a wonderful safe part of the island for all ages. There is no surf, and there are wonderful sandy beaches and the snorkelling is amazing. Definitely stay on the Lagoon side of the island.
