Very nice beach. Unfortunately, more and more sea weed is getting on the beach due to global warming. Without the sea weed it could be one of the best beaches I’ve been to. Not too many people, cool beach bars and resorts.

Not much in the way of shells. Mostly, it's just white sand seemingly that goes on forever.
