I choose to go because of all the reviews - it’s okay. Oil from the boats stain the sand and stray dogs roaming the beach - not really that fantastic.

Beautiful white-sand beach in a natural cove, or rather two natural coves, with a quiet, relaxed setting and not overrun with people. Gorgeous, calm turquoise waters.

Great atmosphere, friendly people (saw the fishermen at work), clean water and not a lot of people. Loved it.

A friendly town with two white sand beaches and fish market. Today too much wind for the fishermen to go out. We had a good lunch in a seaside cafe. Spectacular waves, but ok to bathe on the large beach.

Stopped here during our island tour. There are a couple of beaches separated by a small headland and they are at the edge of the town. There is lots of golden sand plus some volcanic dust sand. There is plenty of places to swim, although...More
