The beach is breathtaking, with colors beyond belief. The merchants amazing, creative, and friendly. The food great, must try the pizza. The sun and heat to die for. The transportation in the old cars amazing.

The best beach iv seen in a long time clean clear blue water . I have a big fear of water and never go in water but this beach was so inviting so blue and clear I had to go in. My first time in the sea I will never forget 😀

A bit scruffy. Toilets horrific but as expected I suppose. Beach at hotel better, and just felt it was a wasted journey. Enjoyed the open top bus ride there though!

Plenty of hammocks and loungers. Sometimes there was a lot of seaweed which was off putting. Water sports available but I couldn't do any as when I went to the sea was too rough.

Just a little too busy and noisy for the older generation. Great for youngsters and party animals. Cafes and snack bars are just at the edge of the beach.

Beautiful sand, lovely warm sea, the perfect way to unwind and relax. There's a couple of beach bars and some water sports here too. Wonderful.

We loved this beach. Beautiful, gentle water, soft sand. Locals have set up lots of little bars and the market is great for souvenirs.
