Difficult to get from the pavement to the beach if you have buggies etc but worth the effort. The beach has a man made breakwater which has created a nice little cove perfect for swimming with young children and the sea is teeming with fish...More

We kept gravitating to this beach despite visiting many others on the island, it seemed to have the best weather, food, facilities etc and has a lifeguard too, it may not have the quintessential beauty of others but as an all rounder it’s our favourite!...More

Finally hunted down this beach a few days ago, mid/late afternoon, as an alternative to the others in PB and the pool at our villa: whilst clean and tidy, we could not help notice a distinct smell of sewerage in/around the beach so cut short...More
