During our travels, we decided to make a pit stop at the Great Sand beach in hopes of unwinding. However, our experience was far from tranquil due to the numerous lodgings in the vicinity. The constant commotion of boisterous children made it impossible to find any solace or peace. In conclusion, I would not recommend this beach as a destination for those seeking a peaceful retreat.

This beach is livelier than others, with a pleasant hum of activity in the background. Fortunately, the beach offers onsite services for shade and refreshments, making it easy to stay comfortable while enjoying the sun and sand. Speaking of sand, this beach features a unique layer of black sand, adding an intriguing touch to the natural beauty of the area. Overall, this beach is a great choice for those who want a lively and convenient beach experience.

Ideal for families with children and conveniently reachable, the beach offers a decent experience. However, it fails to leave a lasting impression and lacks any noteworthy features.
