I felt the beach is very safe and ideal for kids and adults who are not very sea friendly and need a safe and non traumatic experience to make their further beach experiences more fruitful. I regret not going there more than once. A 'text book' beach, that I had no problem with.

Great small beach. The water is clear and warm. Has a rocky bottom until you walk out into the water a bit. There are umbrellas and chairs for rent and a cafe for food and drink.

Great wee beach! Lots of sunbeds, very clear sea water and sand. Free sand toys, books, games, inflatables, and balls to use whilst there. Had we know I advance, would not have purchased!...donated our inflatable and beach ball when leaving. Good value cafe at beach, along with changing areas and toilets.

Very good beach. The tide isn't strong which makes it safe for young kids to swim. The beach can be dirty after the locals have visited it (and dispose of their litter in the sand) on the weekends but during the week, when quieter and cleaner (it does get cleaned every morning) that's no longer a problem.

The beach is beautiful but nothing spectacular, the water was warm. It was a little bit crowded and it is very small. If you are near it, you should have a look, but if your are staying far from it, do not mind.

An amazing hotel and spa. Luxury and relaxation at its best.. It is the best hotel I and my husband have been to. The staff are friendly but not intrusive and very helpful. They really try to make your holiday special. The wide variety of food should suit everyone from what ever country they come . A nice mix of... More
