canĀ“t remember but you will see it!: best option

This is great idea. There is an old train on the beach, it runs parallel with it. This is a hostel, the rooms are simple, but clean, aswell as the bathrooms. There is a kitchen, and bar b que areas that are almost on the beach. Well worth a visit!

sun rise, sunset, nothing like sitting in your cabin (thats what it is its an old train), out in to the ocean while the sun is coming up and down!

Plus when i was there, the staff was good friends with the cage dive company. The companies owner was actually nicknamed great white (how jaws), because of his captain birdeye look, me thinks!
