Since we were on a beach trip, what better way to spend an afternoon than to swim. We took the resort’s buggy on the way to the pool and the beach. Around the property were several golf cart stations to make sure the guests can access all of Shangri-la. Unfortunately, the beach waves were ravaging when we were there. Unlike the sand by the main beach, Shangri-la’s private cove has sand that is a little course. It was windy and no one was swimming. The waves’ movements seemed like it was going to take any swimmer with it.
