... The first beach is wet sand only but we spy a miniature beach over the rocks to the left, so we climb carefully over the rocks towards it. As we walk we marvel at the sea life on the rocks – far more active than in the UK; we actually see dozens of crabs of varying sizes scrambling over the rocks and Jonny is delighted to see several darting fish hiding in them too.
