Lovely beach - gets the sun all day and then you can watch the sunset from a bar in the evening. Fine sand and shallow walk into the sea. Whats not to like?

Had a beautiful drive over the mountains and spent the day at this beach close to the town. Very comfy sunbeds, very good service, crystal clear water. Can be a bit windy, check the forecast prior to going there.

You can just walk a minute and have a great sandy beach on your feet.. Relax or have fun in a big sandy beach with some quiet cafes on the top of it.
