The flat coastal line which once was a huge coconut plantation, thanks to the form was stretched approximately on eight kilometers sandy beaches, interrupts sometimes small rivulets and streams, current downwards from hillsides, casting pensive feeling of a desert island, with the high palms tending at quiet emerald sea. The coral reef is approximately on distance in 200 meters, from shore and during a low tide season (from May till October), swimming between beach and a reef - is not always possible. During other time, a variety of corals and a sea life makes this area, rather suitable for snorkelling.
