This is a very authentic beach as you have the very clear water with nice sand, in combination with the mountains left and right which create a natural bay. Perfect for a lazy afternoon or to take a swim!

Breathtaking beach surrounded by cliffs so it feels very cosy one might say. We went there on a clear, sunny day. Clear waters and sand. It was also very clean. What more could you ask for!
