this is one of the most spectacularly beautiful beaches I have seen in the world. The water was clear blue and turquoise, and reasonably warm for early july. I have heard that the beaches are overrun by tourists and vacationers in august, so we lucked out. Take water shoes for climbing the rocks, and exploring the various beaches. Also find... More

This beach really does live up to its description as one of the most beautiful beaches. With dramatic rock formations and turquoise water it is definitely worth a visit

My idea of paradise. Beautiful beach. Good snorkeling (if calm sea). Walk through the little cave and come out in a little secluded cove - amazing. Cave tour little boats were leaving from the beach. Lots of steps down, but if you can manage it's well worth it! Often a police man in the car park as apparently cars are... More

Visited here with my sisters. We drove here and there was free parking nearby. Its was a little walk down these stairs before you got to the beach. The sand was fine and the water cold but clear-ish (lots of seaweed). The views of the sea walls were amazing. There was quite a few families and couples there sunbathing and... More

I have never written a review of a beach before... But all I can say is this place is simply a must visit!! I've travelled all around the world and am lucky to say I've been on many wonderful beaches in my time, but this is up there as the number 1 beach I've ever step foot on. It's a... More

The natural beauty of this beach is outstanding. We started with the cliff top walk. Afterward we walked down to the beach and had lunch at the beach bar. Then I walked through the cave there and came out at another beach. A photographers paradise. Well worth a visit. Don't miss this place if you appreciate spectacular natural beauty.

What can I say but heaven on earth, this place is the mecca for photographers, probably one of the most beautiful places that exist on the earth. I came there on Saturday around 10 in the morning, the parking was empty, I have luck to enjoy a beautiful weather without any clouds. The scenery was breathtaking, like a postcard from... More

Definitely worth a visit although you must take your own refreshments and be in no need of any facilities - as there aren't any here ! Very picturesque and worth the scramble down the rough steps to the hole in the ground that brings you to a tunnel through the cliff to the beach. Not a trip for the infirm... More
