The beach is wider and more tourists toward the northwest end near a small fresh water lake (which is the source of the town’s fresh water and is rumored to contain crocodiles). The road along the old Independence Hotel is covered with woods which is the habitat of Rhesus monkeys; an added attraction to visitors as monkeys often hang around the stretch.
