Be careful when walking on rocky beaches or near corals in case there are sea urchins. They are black , very spiky and small.

One of their spines can easily pierce your foot or even foot wear in some cases. They are not harmful other than the initial shock they cause and the sting –which will remain for a few hours.

They naturally are absorbed in a few days but you may seek medical assistance.
