During the day I only get a few sand flea bites but once the sun goes down and I am on the beach I get eaten alive.
I try to stay by the pool if I want to get some sun and only go to the beach for a walk or to get to the dive boat, water taxi etc…
I have seen many folks laying on the beach. Some have no bites others are covered head to toe with bites.
The only other Country I have been eaten alive by sand fleas is in the Puerto Plata area in the DR. I always get mosquito bites but the sand fleas are something else.
After I am bitten by sand fleas they swell up and in the morning I have little blisters with fluid in them. It is usually in the area of the knees down.
By the pool and in the resort I have had no problems with being bitten by sand fleas.
