Where to stay and eat:

Accommodation not available.

If you’re staying at Agonda, Cola, or Carmona, you can easily make a day trip to this beach.

If you’re as crazy as me, you can sleep on the beach.

Word of Advice: Carry insect repellants.

As far as eating is concerned, there are numerous coconut trees which offer a free brunch. Nothing better than a bunch of coconuts for brunch.
