No many beaches here so worth paying 3 euro per car. Track down is awful to drive on but worth it. Walk down to beach from car park. Take drinks etc as no where to buy from.

Lovely sandy beach, I went on all three while I was there. I'd recommend the bottom beach for those who don't like steep hills. National park, fee is €3.00 to enter by car. Have your money ready prior to going in it'll say time at the gate. Take plenty of water as you'll need it.

This what a call a post card type beach. Clear blue water, white sand and was not too crowded (we were there end of May). There is a bar as well, however if you want shade, take something with you, there is almost no shade. Be careful when you drive there: it`s a nasty dirt road, but our hire car... More

If you like beaches, then its certainly worth a visit. But only if you have a car as i dont think its accessible any other way. If you were to get a coach, it'd make for an expensive beach trip. Take everything you need though as there are no shops here. And the walk down to the beach isnt really... More

Beautiful white sand and the clearest sea ever, these beaches are paradise. Unspoilt probably because of the 3 euro charge to enter the national park area. Very rarely seem busy as there is plenty of space even at high tide. My boys love the waves and also snorkeling to collect shells etc, beware of the current which can be deceptive... More

Sure, it's a great beach, but don't everyone just know. Hence it's always packed. They charge you 3 Euros to get in and they can't even be bothered to tarmac the road. You'll have about 3-4 miles of bumpy dirt tracks that will destroy your hire car to negotiate before you realize that there is nowhere to park and the... More

An absolutely stunning place. The road leading up is terrible (dirt road) but once you are there it's quickly forgotten. Breathtaking views, definitely worth a visit.

It worth to take very beautiful pictures early in the morning with nobody in the beach. We arribed before 9:30am and we hadn't to pay, still nobody in the barrier. Just three cars in the parking, so we could take very beautiful pictures. We leave the place at 10am and we returned after 5pm. Then it's quite a normal beach... More

As everyone says on TA beautiful Beaches and sea fab and clear. Be prepared for the drive through, I know they said it was down a dirt track but I wasn't expecting it to be as long as it was or as rough. My only gripe was not with the locale but instead with beach house bar, we ordered a... More
