Well worth a visit, the beach is clean and water is crystal clear that is full of fish and marine life. There are plenty of locals selling food and drink, which is brilliant value and quality.

Quiet almost secluded beach right by the Colonna Park Hotel, with clear waters and calm enough for beginners to try stand-up paddling or snorkeling with turtles. Between 10 and 12 you sometimes get these ships stopping there and unloading day tourists in the water nearby,...More
