Clean beach. Limited harassment by homeless this time. All hotels, restaurants and shops did very well this time. Great scenery.

The beach was clean and there were many families there. It wasn't crowded. If I had been dressed for it, I would have enjoyed going in the water. I did wade in the shallows.
