There are few words you can spend on this beach it's simply amazing. It looks like "Caraibi". You can find different places to eat, rent a sun umbrella and also I have tried the JetSki (35€ for 15 minutes) and it was very exciting.

The sea here is very nice the water is clear and cooling. I suggest you visit this place at the sunset to watch the beautiful view. It is worth paying a visit if you are already on the western coast of the island.
