Jansom Bay a nice mini paradise with a sweet little beach! Because the water level here is never really low (not even during low tide) you can almost always swim and snorkel here. The bay is lined with lush palm trees and here and there some large boulders provide some extra tropical beach effect. The beautiful beach is owned by the Hotel Charm Churee Villa which has bungalows situated on the beach of Jansom Bay. People who are not staying at this hotel have to pay an entrance fee to visit the beach.
