Seaweed at VIM?
So I usually roll my eyes when another seaweed thread is started, as the answer is always the same, "it comes and goes". I know this.But VIM posted some photos on their facebook page and I saw no seaweed anywhere. Then one of the most recent reviews posted some pics of the beach and there was...
How bad is the seaweed problem at VIM?
I've seen a few recent posts mentioning bad seaweed. I know this was a problem is many areas last year and we are heading down next week with a group for a wedding and just wanted to gauge how big of an issue its been from people who have been there recently. Thanks!
