Shame that the sand structures seem to have stopped as they were pretty amazing. Still a busy place to visit in the evening even if you don't drop in for a mral

It was a great place to enjoy swimming in the sea, when you stay in an hotel it is easy just to always swim in the pool

Plenty restaurants will be open. There are bars though depends what you mean by busy. It isn’t a party destination, more folk sitting around having a quiet drink.
