Great place to relax and chill. Plenty of bars and restaurants around. Close to the old town. Only issue is the language even in the coffee shops.

There is a natural rock barrier which protects the beach from high waves. The area is set up for people with physical difficulties making it easy for them to get onto the fine, golden sand. The promenade which skirts the beach is full of bars,...More

“La barra” separates a large part of the beach from the ocean so during low tide it becomes a swimming pool full of fishes and things to see while snorkeling. The other part is a surfer paradise, world famous. Often there are sand sculptures especially...More
