This was pretty cool bra size it goes out into the ocean further than I had guessed. The kids enjoyed it and for all the people fishing from the dock and getting to see the different fish and sharks being caught from it.

This the only beach that was very crowded. You need to pay $ 2,00 to go in the pier area. We've never seen so many people fishing one next to each other so we just left. Took some pictures and moved to other beaches
