One day while we were at the beach there was a bandstand set up with a band playing and there was a large crowd of tourists as well as locals enjoying the music.
Part of the beach experience is having local artists coming by to offer you their carvings, jewelry and arts and crafts. They were very interesting and polite and it added to the experience. In addition to people selling crafts their were youngsters walking up and down the beach with coolers selling drinks and occasionally someone would come by selling food or shaved ice.
There was a "food court" type facility at the beach that sold several types of food and drinks in different booths. There were also bathhouses that were very clean and nice that were easily accessible.
