Crystal Beach is a new hotel and early reviews have been positive. Its on the east side which can be isolated with large hotels.

The Pearle Beach is near the town of Flic en Flac, less isolated and does well with Indian guests.

It will be summer in february, the weather will be hot as well as humid.

Flic en Flac is one of the most popular beaches with both holiday makes and locals so you can rest assured that it is safe for swimming and walking.

Why don't you send a couple of PM's to people who have stayed at Pearle beach recently and ask them about the beach?
