Nice beach with few waves - good to take your children. There is plenty of restarants in there, so as a sugestion you can visit the fort during the morning and then drive to the beach (just 1-2km away), have lunch on the beach and enjoyu the afternoon in this beatiful place.

A small beach with some nice restaurants. You can enjoy the beach and also spend some time visiting the fortress.

All the other beaches (all 41 of them) are also great, especially those in the East and South, but this one is special. There are a couple of bars where you can buy fish and... More
