    Malpe beach is a deep ocean beach and though there are sufficient sign boards not to venture in the sea, visitors risk their to the core, specially those who come to visit the beach, who have never seen one. In the event, with their own hands they venture into danger and avoid the caution notices made very clear. The current and wave height is very dangerous at Malpe beach. Moral: Never challenge mother nature, and never risk to play with water Hope the other 2 are recovering well.
