    It is a nice beach to check out, although lots of reviewers will say its busy. It is pretty clean, water looks good, but there are waves. The hawkers on that beach are alright (not as aggressive as other places I've been to). Its fun to walk, and its clean. Must visit!

    Love the warm waters of this beautiful, sandy beach hugged by palm fronds. Go early cos it does become rather busy. Expect dozens of sellers trying to sell you tattoos, water sports, etc.

    Good hotel, long beach and smooth sandy, a lot of plenty of stall pub and bar around the corner. Good for relaxing at beach in day time and shoping at night. Good local and international foods you just name it.

    Great beach... water looked clean but a bit wavy. It's a long stretch of beach, so although it is busy, it is not like you dont have enough space. Lots of crabs and other animals near the shore. Its fun to watch the parasailing go by. Highly recommend visiting.

    A gorgeous scenic area in a tourist-filled town. Lovely, warm, open beaches with a great local feel.
