“Secluded and romantic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

If you're after calm and naturally beautiful beach without tons of tourists spoiling it, it's a good choice. Waves quite big, still you can swim there.

“Enjoy but be carefull!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

I must admit the beach is really beatiful...we were 2 women travelling together and we both fell in love with it..small, still not crowded, peacefull for enjoying yoga, reading a book and having fun in the waves...but all this is overshadowed by harrowing experience and we just want to warn other girls...PLEASE, even the invitation to come for a coctail by the bonfire on the beach and to watch turtles ( from the owner and waitor of the restaurant on the left when facing sea) might sound great DO NOT ACCEPT IT AND STAY AWAY FROM THEIR DRINKS!!!! You might end up paying a lot for what otherwise could have been magical:(

Picturesque, uncrowded, paradise, just stunning. To eat go to the middle hut and ask for Christian the owner, the food is superb.
