          Hello, We are interested in coming to Kendwa Rocks with our own boat. We understand the tide schedule but are wondering what the beach is like near the resort. Is it rocky or completely sandy? We want to make sure that during low tide the boat will not be sitting on rocks. Any help is greatly appreciated!
