At a certain time, it was said that the beach was more of a coral type and dried sea plants. With time though, the beach has been cleaned and looks more of the tropical type. As the proximity with the harbour is very close, a lot of ships entering and leaving the harbour can be seen almost everywhere, and not to mention those small fishermen boats ashore. Apart from that, since it is also close to the harbour, sharks can also be spotted from time to time in the lagoon.
