Very calm place and we like that white sand beach. It’s squeaky... nice place for photography. I see couple of camping sites around. Camping sites are really good and I may stay there if I plan for next time.

This is one of the most amazing beaches ever. The sands are pure white and pristine. There are stunning rock formations in beautiful colours of rust. The sea is spectacular, big blue waves crashing onto the white sands. A must see location.
