“Lovely surf, long and wide”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Great beach. Good surf for boogie boarding. Lifeguard on duty.
Numerous bars and restaurants with good fresh, but expensive, fish.
Not too busy and no pesky hawkers!
Highly recommended.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Narrow, but nice sand, clean beach, cleaned by coast guard which has a HQ here. This June the waves were too strong for swimming, and water was not clear for snorkelling, but that's seasonal. Some restaurants on the beach. No "beach boys" when we were there.

“Gorgeous Beach”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Narrow but clean. High surf but picturesque. And no pesky vendors!

All in all, an excellent place to while away a few (or many) hours.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

The beach was not to crowded as it was coming to the end of the season so it was a bit more personalized in the service in the bars which was nice.
