Further along is the public beach. Although there are no facilities, its a beautiful white beach with turquoise sea of a morning. There is a public gym and a children’s play area on the corniche. Take me to the map
Mangrove Beach is at the end of the mangrove forest and there is a charge for entry and for camping. There are now facilities there.
See separate post on the mangrove forest and shore here. On the other side of the shore is another popular area with sand dunes along the shore .
You can access this area from the coastal road. Take me to the map
