Waves are too dangerous for swimming-- wading is OK in some areas, but be careful of large waves.
The granite sand beach is lovely, but very hard on your feet. The light-colored sand was not hot in April, but VERY scratchy. Bring beach shoes for long walks.
We found baby sea turtles (black little cuties!) on the beach (April 16).
The beach is populated by white-clothed salespeople hawking a variety of wares. Their prices are good, but they can be annoying if you just want to enjoy a stroll on the beach.
The horse poo on the beach is unpleasant in some areas-- just walk beyond the horse ride salesman.
