The locals all know that the best time to go to the beach is when the tourists aren’t there. It’s not that we don’t appreciate what they do for the local economy; many of us couldn’t make a living here without them. We just, you know, like to enjoy the beach when it’s a little less crowded.
So, if you’re a local and you want to go to the beach, you either get up at the crack of dawn or go after 5 when our visitors are on their way home. As a family, we usually opt for the latter because we like to sleep in on the holidays.
