“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Beautiful beach and views. We sat on the beach and just relaxed watching the the waves and taking in the view. The town is really cute with plenty of shops and places to eat. The hill from the shops to the beach is steep, so it could be tiring going up, but well worth the time. This time of year there was parking.

“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.
