Nice calm water, clean and pure-I really liked it. A bit annoying was that there were people who didn´t care about turtles nesting and put their staff farther on the sandline that was allowed.

It would be a perfect beach to relax on and swim from if it wasn't for the sardine like positioning of people unfortunately. The area that is available to lie on is quite shallow (In area) so people tend to lie in a line but...More

A lovely beach to visit. It doesn't get too busy, although quite a few coach trips appear to stop off here, but its only a flying visit. Sunbeds available for 10 euros a day, stony beach with large pebbles, but where the sea breaks it...More

Lovely beach with, just for once, a really nice nudey section at the far end. We are so used to finding the bare bit of a beach is amongst rocks and rubbish. Had to look hard to spot even one cigarette end. Handy mini-market just...More
