Beach can be reached by a shuttle service, € 2,00/per person return ticket. Service runs all day long 9:00am-9:0pm. What is really disappointing is the fact that this is officially a nudist beach, but it's not. There are many "textiles" which is fine, unless for...More

The charm of this beach is just perfect. You are nestled in a cove with mountains and sea surrounding you. Very private and a great restaurant too.
