Once there, you'll be treated to blue waters, colorful corals, abundant wildlife and beautiful sunsets. Bear in mind that the gate to the beach is closed at sundown.

  • You need a keep or something bigger than the little Lego cars you rent but it’s worth it. Super bumpy hilly ride to the beach. We found tons of conch shells

  • Gorgeous, quiet beach. GREAT snorkeling! We were able to traverse the road in our little Suzuki Swift, but if you're in a small car and not a confident driver on sketchy terrain, I recommend parking at the red gate where the tower is and walking the last stretch.
  • This was possibly my favourite spot on the entire island. TLDR: Must see spot The drive down is treacherous. I saw a number of small cars down in the car park right at the beach and personally I do not recommend driving any car down this road. It would be extremely easy to get stuck or do major damage to a rental car. You do not want your holiday ruined by having to deal with dealing with the financial fallout of a poor decision. Any rental car company will take every dollar from you if you damage a car on this trail. I suggest only attempting this road with a skilled driver and all-wheel drive/4X4 and a vehicle that has a high clearance off the ground. If you only have a car, I suggest parking at a safe spot (before the red barrier/gate) and walking down to the beach. Once you pass the red barrier/gate, the road gets really rough,really fast. Anyway at this point, let's assume you have made it down safely. There are no washrooms, running water, beach attendants, vendors, lifeguards down here. Usually, this place is empty. Be warned that along the entire path off the main road, all the way to the water, there are many security cameras, including some rotating cameras that monitor the beach and the sea. This is a really isolated beach with spectacular views. There is a gazebo if you need some shade while out enjoying the view. There are some really nice reefs, both real and artificial that make for memorable diving. There are posted maps and visuals that help you get an idea of what you will find. This spot was recommended to me by a fellow tourist, and I am glad i was able to make the trek down. I think everyone should make this journey.
