A beautifully idyllic beach. Quiet sandy sheltered. Don't go if that's not what you want and leave it to those who do :-) So perfect my fiance proposed here on the final day of our holiday ❤

Turquoise water, quiet beach and lovely views of the rocks and caves around! The small beach gives it a sun trap too!

A bit of a walk from the top car park. Resteraunt on the beach. Go to the far end past the rock you can walk through to discover a beach full of shells!
