We walked through the dunes to this beach, which was a lovely 45 minutes walk. We stayed a few hundred meters east of the nude beach, far away from the hotel area. It's a nice sand beach, the water is easily accessible (no sharp rocks) and it's quite relaxing. There are areas with beds for hire and people walking along... More

A very good place to take sun, relax with your drinks (beers totally allowed) and food. The sunbeds and umbrellas are cheap (2,5euros) and you can use them till 5pm (in January, don't know about other months). Very clean place as everyone cleans after themselves, even if busy it's still a nice spot to stay and you don't really feel... More

Beach area next to apartments, hotels, restaurants that is about 3km long. Good place to swim, surf or just to hangout. Very clean and too crowded.
