Everything you need
Situated down a narrow side lane just back from the southern end of the beach road, Blue Beach has a string of concrete bungalows running back behind an atmospheric open-air restaurant amid a fair amount of greenery.
Standard rooms are set in attached one-floor buildings (two rooms per building) with ivy growing over the roofs. They’re large enough for a pair of travellers to make themselves comfortable and come with wide windows, soft beds, fans (in addition to air-con), white tile floors, basic hot-water wet bathrooms, tiny TVs and clothes-drying racks. While these will be fine for most, the superiors come in detached bungalows with high, almost A-frame ceilings and might be worth the extra cash. Along with more space, these bag you terraces, mini-fridges and bigger, newer TVs. Camping is also possible if you’re travelling with a tent. The food at Blue Beach’s restaurant has received good reports, and it’s a fine place to kick back with a book or chat with the friendly owners. You’ll also find some playthings for the kids.
