I was still a little boy when I took this picture in 1960 with a Kodak “box”.  As on the other pictures of this period, there were many boats and little sand.  And of course, no car park.  Please notice that the name Caravel•la did not appear yet on the 2nd building on the left.
Photograph March 2011.  In case of stormy weather, part of the car park can get extremely wet.
