There are many restaurants and bars on this beach. Many people go there at night. You can eat in a barbecue or in a japanese or italian restaurants.

My son is studying in the region so i went for jogging before getting him at school twice. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking but I do not feel safe in there. Careful with your wallets in there!
