Nothing compares to the sunsets and pristine sands of this jewel. Seemingly overrated and overexposed but the closure did wonders! Majestic!

It the busiest beach front in the area. Lots of shops and restaurants, but everything by the beach is slightly more expensive

White beach is a pretty crowed beach but clean and safe! When I say safe, I mean you can walk barefooted along the beach without worrying of broken bottles or whatsoever! The sand is super soft I almost ate it! Water is colder than beaches...More
