  • We are actually not directly on the beach. The school is on a hill with a fantastic view of the beach. To get here you have to climb a flight of stairs.
    If it rains heavily at night, there may be mud at the bottom of the stairs. The path will be cleared of mud by our team as quickly as possible in the morning. Until then, be careful about moving up to school.
