We longed to dip ourselves in the salty marine water. Woe unto us when we got to the beach, coz too many people were there. We prefer some level of privacy. It did not look safe.

A beautiful beach with warm temperatures, swaying palm trees, soft and white sand caressed by the water of the Indian Ocean. It has a large and still growing assortment of hotels and restaurants (some of them extremely luxurious).
