"This beach is undoubtedly aesthetically pleasing, but don't be fooled by its looks. Not every inch of this sandy paradise is suitable for a refreshing dip. So, if you're looking to frolic in the waves, you might want to exercise caution and do some reconnaissance before diving in."
Colin Tanner
"Undoubtedly, the beach boasts breathtaking beauty. However, the upkeep leaves much to be desired. The abundance of litter is a major eyesore and detracts from the overall appeal. Additionally, the lack of shoreline along the expanse makes it difficult to find a comfortable spot to relax and relish in the surroundings."
