Beach looks nice on the pictures, but it is not my type of beach. There are no natural shade (trees) there, but sun umbrella and sunchairs can be rented (10$ per person for booth). People who don't mind strong sun will love the white sand/blue water 2 km long beach.

Narrow line of sand. Almost no rocks at bottom when you going to swim. We were here in the beginning of October and there was a kind of feeling of forbiden space, after end of season
