Every few days when swimming in the sea on Long Beach we had a rather unpleasant experience. It feels as though you are swimming in water full of small glass filings! The mystery was solved when I noticed something in one of the guidebooks about some little stinging creatures / fish that are present in the sea and I think they are more active when the fishermen have been in that area in the morning.

Most of the time it was ok, but i must say it made me glad of the pool facility at the Tropicana!
