It is a short but noticeable walk from the city center. Quiet place with appropriate cabanas and very nice common toilets. The problem is, it being one of the few premium places in otherwise pretty overrated (in my opinion) town, It just blends into overall atmosphere of disinterest. You can swim there but water is muddy and not really appealing. Pier is cool for relaxing, didn't try the food.
