... and we finally managed to have a swim in the sea (I think I stayed 5 minutes inside). The beach itself, Dona Ana, was actually very pretty, down a cove between cliffs, deep green water... making it a tropical paradise for Northern Europeans. You can count on them to be here to enjoy it with you. For dinner, a short walk in the old town and we set our minds on a seafood restaurant again.
