"The serene beach boasts a quaint fishing harbor that adds to its charm. The morning hours are particularly delightful as one can witness the sailors returning from their sea adventures. However, one must exercise caution while indulging in a swim as the water can be unpredictable. It is advisable to seek guidance from the locals before taking a dip."
