The draw of Kizkumu (girl's sand) is that the water is shallow. And of course there is a gimmick... erm... legend... about it. Allegedly, to escape some dire situation, an ancient princess (it's always a princess) waded in to the water dumping sand from her dress to make a path, because she couldn't swim. Tragically, she drowned in the process. Apparently they didn't have boats back then. Nobody knows the origin of the legend, but the boys at the local cafe-bar probably had something to do with it.
