This is a nice beach, and a very nice CITY beach - it goes on and on and on... It is convenient when visiting the city.

Very nice beach, but not for swimming due to the sharks, and there are warnings all along the beaxh. If you want to sit down in a chair, or lay down on a sun bed, the place is nice. The beach is next to the...More

Nice beach inside the city with beautiful trees. The side walk is cute with places to buy food every few meters. I didn't like thia part of the city... Not the prettiest.

Nice beach, within easy reach. Plenty of small side walk bars, sport facilities. Beach chairs for rent. But do pay close attention to safety warnings concerning sharks!

Be aware of sharks sights was a surprise, but some people swim not so deep and still survive. 😅 I didn’t dare to swim.

A nice sandy beach but beware of being ripped off by the parasol and beach chair hirers. There are plenty of hawkers selling all sorts of food but none of them bother you to buy from them.

Nice, clean beach where I have spent a lovely time. The water is also clean and warm. I will come back here whenever I will have the occasion.

Beautiful view, good for walk and relax with the view. Danger: sometimes there are sharks in the ocean. Not appropriate for bathing
