There are plenty of advantages to visiting a beach that isn't surrounded by thousands of hotel rooms; less popular beaches like Double Bay Beach are perfect when you need a break from the typical tourist scene.

Amenities and Ambiance

Blindingly white sands and vibrant blue waters make this beach a beauty.
