First thing I noticed when visiting the beach was how clean and maintained it was. We did not go in the water, as there had been an incident the previous day of tourist getting into trouble and required to be rescued.

We had a good time and a nice swim at this pleasant beach. Waves were quite rough though. During October, the beach was also not too full.
