This is a busy area, with lots of peddlers. The waves can be quite strong at times. I saw a lady almost drown in front of the Crowne. Her husband couldn't fight the undertow to help her, and two locals pulled her out.

We went there in August, maybe this could be an influence. Even when the springbreak and high-season were over, this beach is overcrowded and full of vendors. You can not get a chair here, unless you pay some beach-overloard $6 and buy him some drinks....More
