A beautiful beach

Few cities have golden sandy beaches that are miles long! Quite a safe beach and a lot of ambiance in summer with bars and cafes near at hand.

The beach is a long sandy beach, with nice views and great for a relaxing time. There are some parking spaces, but it takes some time to find a spot. Some restaurants nearby.
