They were taking them out by the 5 gallon bucket full, " enough said" . The swim area is very small the water has many sea erchants and a few jelly fish, so wear water shoes and beware. The green flag was out daily, it was not safe in my mind. This beach is at a Marinia, a cruise ship comes in at least once a week, it was there three days when when we were there, no one from the ship came there on there for a day pass, " i womder why" !!??
