My sister in law goes on holiday to places famous for their amazing
beaches and refuses to set foot on them unless in order to reach a
particular water sport, instead she'll use the pool and patio of
whichever fugly blot on the landscape hotel she's staying in.
Apparently the sand is too much hassle.

OTOH I did find the pebbly beaches on Paxos to be considerably less
hassle with an 18 month old toddler than the sandy ones at home - no
mouthfulls of sand, no nappies full of sand, less hassle all round.
