Very nice Beach, not crowded at all, very nice blue water.

Very nice beach, not crowded, water is very nice blueish and very clear. You see the fish swimming around and you feed them with bread.

There are not many beaches to beat this, beautiful golden sand and turquoise water for as far as you can see. Just be aware that there are nudists though!
