Wow. Difficult to find a more beautiful beach anywhere. No wonder its been elected most beautiful beach in the world 4 times. Wow. Really worth dealing with the difficult access to the beach

I don’t understand other reviewers complaining about the difficult access tand at the same time the excess number of tourists on the beach! One should be prepared to put some effort to get to a hidden exotic gem rated as the world’s best beach which...More

Gorgeous location. Gets very crowded and is difficult to access up and down a ladder. Waves very very big when we were there with lifeguards constantly whitling at snorklers to stay away from the rocks

Great beach inside a reserve but you´re supposed to go down 187 steps of an iron ladder between rocks. Not for everybody! Fat people would fit in there, children can get afraid. And then you have to climb the 187 steps back to top! :-(

Must go even with snap children. I took my 8 months and my 4 years old. Just be aware you might need to carry some extra weight.

Beautiful beach. Lovely golden sand Not many people. Be aware that the waves are strong so it's not a good swimming spot. To access the beach you must climb down two ladders which might not be suitable for some visitors.
