  • We were eating in our weeklong vacation a few times at this beach, and it there because he was perfect from the location and drink and even toilets were. Which cost $10 including wifi (which you have when you go bikini Hut to the Tiki Bar but only) If you are good, you get to the Liège a drink to do so. There is food in several booths, every day will be grilled on a tasty ribs and chicken at a good price. For a cold beer, you should use the offer very rechts(wenn man vor den Strand steht), there are 3 sands beer and 4 shots (at its own discretion, we had mango rum) for $10
