"The beach with a climb that begins at a wooden platform. Although not particularly challenging, it is advised to wear appropriate footwear. The beach itself is stunning and has an air of exclusivity. The sand is immaculate and the water is crystal clear, making it a truly remarkable destination."
Derek Chen.
"The beach is truly breathtaking! But, as many others have mentioned, there is a bit of a descent that requires a bit of agility. While it's manageable in athletic shoes, I wouldn't advise trying it in flip-flops or sandals unless you're confident in your rock-climbing skills - there are no safety ropes to rely on!"
