    When we stay at Catcha, our driver drops us off at Margarittaville. We grab some onion rings and an ice cold red stripe at the little beach bar and relax. Then, we hang a left and walk down the beach and enjoy other beach spots for more cocktails.

    The same as anywhere else on the beach since they're just walking up and down

    You'll see everyone that is working/walking throughout the day; hat guy, flag/bandana guy, carvers, shells, beads, bracelets, baskets CDs, sketch artists, pork, lobster, fruit, patties etc. It's still a busy section of the beach.

    During the busy season, you will likely find a jewelry vendor and a massage person stationed at Sun Beach. They are not aggressive at all, but it's nice to have some diversions onsite if you want to browse. As others said, the usual patty, fruit, juice, ice cream vendors will stop by. You will also get bracelet guys etc., but the staff will quickly shoo them away if they become annoying. Dennis the Menace runs the place and takes good care of his customers.

    Charela is a great choice! They have a day pass you can purchase for USD25.00. That $25 goes toward your food and bar bill (they warn you when you have $10 left)., You can use the pool, too. Good food! Large portions, though.

    My first choice would be Sun Beach - but that's because I love Alicia!
