This is a fabulous beach that is super long and super wide. Tons of space for thousands of people to share with vendors set up along the way. U can walk for miles on hard sand so easy to walk on

The sand was relatively clean, but the water was very dirty (in the first day the dirt resembled oil from the port and in the second day it resembled sewage). I will not come back.

need to be careful, and don't take any personal items to the beach with you. Robbery is rampant there
