One sure what the "excellent" reviewers were smoking. There is a song phase - Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right. If you swap the words with oil tanks and massive container port, that is honestly the view from the small beach....More

Great beach, clean and can get 2 sun loungers and umbrella for 10 euros. Only downside is that you have to give up the seats by 5pm, we wanted to stay longer. Another downside for me I’m sorry to say is too many crying children,...More

Stay away. It is a waste of time! It is very noisy, smells of oil, water is not that clear. Not the best choice!

Good beach that's not too busy. There is a large container port to the right of the bay which spoils the holiday vibe a bit. Nice for an afternoon away from the main busy tourist spots
