People like different things, I loathe busy commercial beaches, if we go on a land holiday we look for a hotel on a quiet natural beach bordered by palm trees /vegetation where we can walk along thinking we are on a desert island. For anyone who knows the island Barbados is a good example of this, you can be crammed onto one of the popular South Coast beaches with hundreds of ''those awful cruise people'', plagued by vendors, jet-ski men etc. Bordered by concrete & a busy road. Or you can look elsewhere & find beautiful secluded stretches of beach where you can revel in nature...OK you won't find music & a handy Pina Colada but so what? I can never understand what people see in travelling to a beautiful island & just frequenting somewhere like Ft. Lauderdale/Miami or for Brits Spain...why bother?
