Not crowded beach, nobody arrass you, good choice of food even if you eat veggie food, ask the cook of the food shops to make something with vegetables and you will get a nice meal waitin 20 or 30 minites.

When I visited here it was okay. Better if you are going with friends as there isn't much to do. Great for tourists who love craft items. There are always craftsmen on the beach.

When I was there Dec 2016, the man who collected the donations was sweeping the rubbish into a pile near the tideline, then covering it with sand. Beach cleaning.
