Safety


With regard to safety, it is fair to say that Amadores beach is very safe, but of course you should take all the usual precautions. One of the most important things is to take care of your skin in the sun. Amadores beach is close to the equator and pale-skinned tourists who are not used to such strong sun can get burned really badly, which will ruin the remainder of their holiday.

It is important to use a high factor sunscreen for the first few days, before dropping to a lower one if you want to. Reapply the sunscreen often, especially after swimming. This is sensible advice but you would be amazed how many people do not bother using a high enough factor sunscreen. Sunburn is incredibly painful and you should not get burned, because not only will this spoil the rest of your week but after all the burned skin sloughs off you will be white again! Amadores beach is a safe place to swim.

The bay is protected from the ocean so there are no big waves and the sea is very calm.

As for crime, there is not much but basic safety precautions are always a good idea, and those involve not taking more cash than you need (or your passport) to the beach with you, and keeping an eye on your belongings at all times.
