The undertow was enough to knock me off my feet and I’m a reasonably competent swimmer. I’m from Upstate NY (Syracuse) and it’s pretty landlocked. But swimming in ocean places all along the East Coast, I’ve never once experienced this level of violence with the waves and undertow. I had trouble exiting the water. A guy had a boogie board that he let me grab onto to get out. It helped a lot and I think having one could save your behind. When a wave comes in, the water can go from ankle deep to up to your thighs. I’m a pretty tough chick but I know when Mother Nature has the upper hand. I was solo here (and naked, why not), and did get hit on a little bit. Nothing I couldn’t handle (also note, I am 34, practically translucent white, except for my VERY florid face, not some cute young chick lol). It’s interesting but if I can’t swim, the beach doesn’t hold a ton of appeal for me.

Located DMT here. The best experience I ever had, bar none. I lived on the island for years. Sunday drum circle became a regular stop.

This was an amazingly beautiful undeveloped beach. We were invited back for the Sunday afternoon drum circle, but discovered not much drumming, but Sunday is clothing optional- super awkward.

Beautiful black sand beach with turtles and an amazing lagune just behind. Without visitors could be even better, but the the location has his own charme

The Black Sand Beach was very interesting to witness. The day we were there we got to see a green turtle resting on the beach.
