... but with only a few foreign tourists around, it is very quiet during the week. Empty white sand beaches and yesterday there was a total of maybe two dozen people on a 600-800 meter beach. There are lots of choices for restaurants and all is reasonably priced. Rooms and meals can easily be kept under 50$ a day during the week. This is what Donna has been waiting for.
