There is only a few visitors in the beach, about 25 per day. The reason is that because the beach lies in an isolated place. The beach is located behind hills and trees.

Tips for you
Popular with surfers but not overcrowded. This beach is a gem its so clean and the water is blue, many small caves to explore when the tide is out in the afternoon, one cave to the right has a few resident bats sleeping through the day! Current is strong here so make sure your a good swimmer! You must be physically fit to reach this beach as the hundred or so steps are steep and a little uneven. The hawkers at the car park in particular are relentless! They wont take no for an answer and are always touching you.. just ignore them and eventually they leave you alone! Well worth a visit!
Amazing beach, blue clear waters rubbish free. Good for a swim, surf or snorkel. You can even check out some hollowed out sea caves on the beachs. Take some water as the staircase down is a bit of a hike, and quite tiring to get back up. Local women heckle you to buy bracelets, if you're not interested just say so otherwise you'll end up having 5 or 6 surrounding you trying to get you to buy theirs.
