No high-rises, no trash, no crowds...just a long expanse of sand and sets of waves for surfing or swimming. Was fortunate to get to go to this beach on multiple days and plan on returning some day.

Looking to travel towards the end of October. Is it too rainy then? Difficult to drive? Are the businesses and restaurants open?

October is really not the best time to go. Yes a lot of rain, and sometimes the roads are washed out from the heavy rain. The business are not all open since it is low season.
