Widely advertised in the media and by bloggers taking selfies against the background of the “whitest sand in the world”, the beach has been turned into a place of pilgrimage for hundreds of tourists who will not miss a day to not go to the beach.

However, the infrastructure is not designed for so many people. For example, on the whole beach there are only two toilets and one cafe with a small shop nearby.

Not to mention the relatively small parking. And if you put the car in the wrong place, for example, on the road marked with yellow marking, you risk earning a $ 300 fine.

The choice is yours. But the fact that this beach is obligatory for visiting is for sure, because this sand is even wanted to be imported by other countries!
