I've been there since I was a kid and I could see the evolution of the place... In the 80' it was like a desert beach, now if you doesn't arrive early in the morning you can't almost find a place... It's pity!!!

A hidden gem of a bay but no public transport to it. Allow at least 45 minutes to walk there but routes are hilly so maybe a taxi needed. Grea for sunbathing and swimjing in clear bl water. There is also a very good restaurant...More
