A weekend's place

Play football, volleyball or any sort of game on the beach. Beautiful stretch of white sandy beach and on a coastal sunny afternoon it is hard to resist the water

The beach is clean. The water is crystal clear. The sun is warm. Find a comfortable beach chair and it's a great way to chill out. The only drawback is the tide. At high tide, you can swim with ease. At low tide, you need to walk far out from shore to be deep enough. However, it is great for... More

The beach itself is lovely and when you catch it on a good day it's just lovely for a long walk and dip in the water! If it's not a so good day you will find a lot of trash & too many 'beach-boys'. Just time it right and it will be a nice visit or over look the not... More

Its an idyllic location lots of bars and restaurants. There is a lack of tourists now, which is a shame as its a really laid back place.... More
