Dangers & Annoyances

Being on the beach alone at night is asking for trouble, as is walking along any quiet beach back road at night. Avoid the far northern end of the beach, or any deserted patches of sand, as muggings are common. There are lots of guys selling drugs, so remember: everything is illegal. Drug sales often turn into stings, with the collusive druggie getting a cut of whatever fee police demand from you (if they don’t throw you in jail).
