I really wish I could give this a higher rating. The beach here has a beauty all it's own; the coral is breathtaking as the tide comes crashing in, and beautiful in a desolate, melancholy sort of way when the tide creeps its way back...More

If you're looking for some sea, sun and sand this place is just right! Ideal for Day trips for the family for a cool beach picnic. Nice to have some great time with friends too! Quite easily accessible by private car or even public transport.

I simply Love the Indian ocean, from Indonesia through India, Mauritius and here in Kenya's beautiful coast. Parts of the beach have slippery pebbles which become slimey but once past these you enter pure bathwater. So warm!!! Lovely, the warmest waters of the Indian ocean...More

Too bad the ever-present beach boys don't spend a wee bit of time tidying up their beach. They seemed to think I was nuts for picking up plastic, etc whenever I went for a beach walk. Cool camels. Pushy beach boys.

everything, food, people,and scenery, a poor place but the natives are friendly and helpful, this can be a bit of a bother but if you take pencils and sweets everything is okay.

Loved being able to walk out and see the corals (deads) aqnd the creatures hiding in the tidal pools. The 2.5 meter high tide covers a lot of real estate. Enjoyed just sitting in a beach chair watching the tide roll away.

Its a lovely beach but you will bombarded with beach sellers. It is a great place to buy your souveniers but be ready to haggle.

Good swimming when high tide but no good when tide is out. Wear something on your feet.
