This was a beautiful, sheltered, fine-sand beach with great body surfing waves. The rock cliffs enclosing the beach look like folded, twisted layers of pie crust.
We had a good time in the water and August met a girl from Madrid, Clara, who seemed to love body surfing as much as he does. They were in the water for hours.
|Even I got some boogie board time!|

|Louis, Spencer and I play some soccer while Oliver...hides?|
Silly me, our little Seat did just fine getting up the hill. Off we went to find the inland beach of Gulpiyuri. Inland beach?
Gulpiyuri is a beach that has formed behind the cliffs. There is a connection through a tunnel in the cliff wall. The tunnel used to connect the ocean to a cave, which has long since collapsed, creating the inland beach. Water also seeps up through the beach sand. There are actual waves on this little beach and at high tide it is filled with water. We were there at low tide.
