Long 20+ minute walk through the RIU to the beach. Sand was scorching so shoes are a must. Followed a goup to the water, but getting back to the RIU took a bit of navigating. As you traverse the dunes, it is easy to get...More

Lovely place, but be careful if going with children, There is a lot going on in the dunes that you may not want them to see.

We were there in December and the top temperature over 10 days was 26 deg and the minimum during the day was 18 deg. I would say in February it would be slightly warmer.
