“3rd Beach - Gay Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

If you want a gay friendly beach, go to 3rd beach. Packed with glistening beach bodies and sea and surf to match

“Blonde sand and blonde bodies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

Very well looked after and frequented by gorgeous people. The water however verges on freezing. Difficult to find parking and a long walk up and down steps depending upon which of the four beaches you frequent. Fourth is the most popular.

“Beautiful beaches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Busy shops, restaurants, villas, hotels and beaches. Fast paced but so much fun. Easily available on the hop-on, hop-off bus.

“beautiful, for the young crowd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

the beaches are beautiful (there are 4 of them, # 4 is the famous one & more crowded), the setting with the rocks is amazing. however, you park up on the main road & you have to carry your things down to the beach, on many steps. it becomes less comfortable coming up. the beach is very crowded in the summer & has no cafes/ restaurants.
