The resort had a shuttle that took us to the beach. It was about a five minute ride.
It was a bit foggy when we first got to the beach, but it cleared up as the day went on.
Apparently, going to the beach from 9am until noon means you will pretty much have the beach to yourself.
Jane's alternative to sunscreen.
We went back to the resort about noon, and after the kids' quiet time we hit the pool.
Anna bought these "Puddle Jumper" floatation devices for the kids and they worked really well.
The kids are able to float pretty easily and get used to swimming in the pool with others around.
