In May, this is an uncrowded, great little platja. True that the access is a steep set of stairs, but it's not really bad, even going back up. The beach is little pebbles, not sand. Entry into the water is gradual for a few feet...More

VERY pebbly beach so be kind to your feet and get in the sea and explore! The sea is very shallow for the first few meters and then drops off to get very deep very quickly - great for snorkeling: the kids loved it.
