We stayed up on the hill not far from the location you are asking about-yes we walked to Sunset, Maho and Karakters. There was quite a bit of seaweed and rocks closest to the point. The walk back was difficult as it was uphill to our unit. We walked down the beach and frequently swam near Beach Side Villas and that area was kept clean. You will probably need a car if you plan on shopping etc. Enjoy!
