Nice beach for everyone. A bit pity that the way between the beaches is run down and closed. And full of garbage. But you can still go. Just don‘t go barefoot, there is allot of glas.

The place is wonderful. Wild, isolated, makes you forget about everything else. But, in order to enjoy it, you should know that: - it's not a sandy beach, but with littles stones, that make the water crystal clear - there's only a bar, that open...More
