“Squeaky clean soft sand and dog-friendly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

A long, soft sand beach with spectacular views. A walk back along the bluff makes a nice round-trip.

“The most fantastic beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This is the most fantastic beach; it was great to walk in bare feet on the warm, white sand with the ocean crashing to shore. The lagoon along the front is also great. We went back in the evening to watch the sunset.

“Nice Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We walked along Carmel beach which was very nice with good golden sand. Must say it's not the prettiest of beaches such as Zante or even parts of Ibiza but nice nonetheless.

“Spectacular sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

This is one of the most beautiful beach sunsets we experienced! The view is spectacular and we even saw dolphins going by just before sunset. This is dog and family friendly but also very romantic. It is very clean and looks pristine.
