Are they bad on the beach? I'm staying in a beach cabin on Paradise beach this July and wondering how bad the bugs might be.

Not too bad, but it helps if you've had a bit to drink (that's why I didn't notice them).

Apart from that, a bit of roll-on or spray-on repellant helps.

Actually, it can help to spray the room as there's nothing worse than having them buzzing in your ear while you're trying to sleep.

Thanks! Fortunately during childhood camping trips I learned how to sleep with the covers completely over my head. I think my silk sleep sack will come in handy there. I do plan to bring some strong repellent, either in liquid or wipes (for carry on) because I've heard the mosquitoes can be bad by the beach. Maybe pick up some spray along the way in Italy where it's probably cheaper. Hopefully, the alcohol will help me too :)
