Invite local person as guide (Couchsurfer) for good reason cause not much people know the location of this beach. It’s hard to find the place for new visitor. You can ask to people that you met in the street. But, you have take off your helmet and turn off the engine. This is the local manner. Otherwise, it’s not polite.
