A Natural Beach:
Our beach is a "natural beach", maintained by tides and weather. At any given time there may be driftwood, and small to large amounts of sargassum seaweed and other plant life washed up on the beach. Natural materials provide nourishment and stability to the beach. We do rake the beach in cases of excessive build-up of seaweed or debris.
