There are plenty of chairs and floaties at CN. There is never a problem finding chairs, but you may have to move them to the spot you want. There are no umbrellas because they would ruin the look of the beach, however, there are plenty of trees for shade.
no umbrellas but ALOT of trees to sit under! There are plenty of loungers and tables and you can always find a private area. We would sun in the early morning but after lunch, we would find a shady place under the mangroves and have cocktails and read. Your red flag will come in handy. FYI - by the scuba hut is a very quiet area and there are restrooms at this end.
There are plenty of chairs with floaties and lots of natural shade on the beach. We have never had a problem finding a chair no matter what time of day we head to the beach. Could be more of an issue if you are heading for the pool. Chairs are more limited around the pool.
You will love CN.
Can't remember at the main beach but at the AN beach had plenty of chairs and no umbrellas. There were
a couple of nice trees though with large canopies for shade. Especially if it is not too busy, a lot of people move
in and out to keep from getting too much sun. Great bar there too with very friendly staff, namely Mesha.
