Fodor's Review

This beautiful, petite, somewhat secluded beach is protected by two outcroppings, creating calm waters good for families. A small stream trickles into the cove. You'll find a bar and restaurant serving fried chicken right on the beach. If this stretch of sand looks familiar, it might be because you've seen it in the movies: Club Paradise, Treasure Island (the 1990 TV-movie version), and The Mighty Quinn. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: partiers; sunrise; swimming.
