Sunset, depth and waves

With the ebb of the sea goes to 5-7 meters, slightly affecting the change in appearance and water quality of the beach. The depth here is the same as on Lipa Noah - to go into the water on the chest, you need to wander along the coral bottom about 50 meters. Waves happen in strong winds, but during the rainy season they are especially angry here.

Sun beds and shade

There are almost no sources of natural shade on the beach. The main shelter will be beach umbrellas, which stand along the sun loungers, but there is no rent of sun beds. And if you bring your personal umbrella, then most likely you will not be able to stick it in the dense sand of the beach.
