Sandy beach, very wide at low tide and a bit small at high tide. Always enough room for launching. Keep an eyes open to the coconut trees. Help for launching and landing is available. On high tide the beach is quite narrow, but enough room to launch. At low tide the beach is very wide. Avoid the sea weed in that is stranded in strong wind (the personal cleans it off the beach continuously) - it sometimes has some tar/oil sticking to it, that can stain your equipment.
