Hello Arlene. Unfortunately the beach is not good for swimming. The shoreline is pebbly with a steep drop fenced in by hollow blocks (need to go over this to get to the water). After that it is too shallow to swim (like ankle or foot depth) for several meters. The sand is more grey than white. Makes a good walk though, with lots of small gray starfish between small spreads of sea grass. Beware of sandflies on the beach, they are not visible but bite fiercely!

I went during low tide and it was not very good, you would probably have to walk a half mile in rocky muddy water to even get to the ocean, not good. The pool is right next to it so all we did was look out into the distance to see the water but that was it.

Beach is not nice. Its murky but its good for kayaking since its very shallow for around 20-30 meters from the shore.

Beach was rocky, water warm but not clear in short not good for snorkeling, also can be choppy..however, They have great sunsets and low tide that goes at least 1 mile out that kids can walk to and explore..literally like walking in water..

They have private beach, only guest can enter, if low tide you have to walk farther to swim. Not so white but fine sand beach.
