We’ve been coming here many years now and the beach has even gotten quieter. Very warm sea water as the sand bottom has a very shallow grade (good for children too). At the village and the beach there are a few small-scale cafe’s and restaurants....More

The sea here is very warm, sheltered and shallow making it ideal for children. Beach/sea shoes are recommended because there are many sea urchins with nasty spines that stick in your feet. The sea is too murky for decent snorkelling and too shallow for diving....More

Safe beach for families, sandy water margins and shallow shore line. Watch out for the spiny seeds at the back of the beach, always wear shoes when entering or leaving the beach.

We spent many happy hours at this beach (at the same time as the rather negative review from Milan funnily enough). We had a few days where the wind blew so the sea was slightly choppy causing the sea grass to be washed up. On...More

Unfortunately lots of seaweeds and very blurred water. A real pity because the bay is fascinating, free sunbeds offered by the Paradise bar if you buy something and very little people ( almost desert!) Not impressing for the sea, beach and landscape overall. There are...More

We had heard the same things about the beach but found it to be quite clean. No cigarette butts or animal poo. That was October 2015. Lovely resort as long as you don't want anything more than quiet friendly and unspoilt... More
