“It's nice on good days. This year there has been lots of stingrays/ skates so I would not be standing on the ground walking around for 6 hours a day or you might get stung! Ive seen stingrays but never really stepped on one so its noting to worry about. But other then tonnes of jellyies on a really good day I got stung about 6 times in 1 day so just telling you there's jellies!”
