Safe environment. Lots of non-tourists attend this beach. There were a couple of snack vendors near along with a couple of small restaurants. Easy to get to by bus.

No, Brown's Beach is a very clean well kept beach. There are no problems with sewage, seaweed nor garbage of any kind. You will find that the facilities are well monitored, the beach attendants are always willing to help.
