Banana Beach is relaxed and family-friendly, drawing a slightly older crowd than the more party-oriented spots. It's named after the cafe located here, which has comfortable seating and a simple menu - a nice place to while away the afternoon. There's not much else on offer, but this is an ideal setting to catch up on quieter pursuits like beach reading or backgammon.
