The sea was very clean and calm. There were more than a couple of life Guards on duty so It is relatively safe. The beach was not busy so it was very pleasant.

I have never seen such crystal clear blue water before. I absolutely loved it and would recommend this beach to all beach-goers! People were friendly here and the beach itself was really clean!
