Fodor's Review

This stretch of peach-colored sand has a cove and a fishing village at one end. It's the local favorite, so it can get crowded on weekends. Lifeguards will guide you away from strong currents. Parking sites are ample, and there are snack bars selling the famous bake and shark, a must-try. Take the winding North Coast Road from Maraval (it intersects with Long Circular Road right next to KFC Maraval) over the Northern Range; the beach is about 7 miles (11 km) from Maraval. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; toilets. Best for: partiers; swimming; walking.
