The beach itself is not very nice. Not very well cleaned, scenic view is a thermoelectric plant... But the water has a nice temperature; especially in high tide you can feel some waves of lukewarm water coming from the plant cooling circuit.

I go to this beach since I was born and although it's not a bit crowded during the summer, it's a top choice if I want to swim. The water is very hot and sometimes it's like you're in a jacuzzi ;) The beach is clean and has a great restaurant.
