“Picturesque spot that is worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

This is a historic site that is overlooked by ancient lookout towers and striking rock formations. The shallow and clear waters are lined with rocks and a boat ramp.
You have to pay to go there for a look/swim and share the concrete with a crowd. If you like a sand beach there are better places close by but this picturesque spot is worth a look.

“Overhyped”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Not worth paying to see. Hopelessly overcrowded. And there's no beach and nowhere to sit down except on a concrete platform.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Supposed to be a museum but we couldn't find one! Just some fishing gear stacked up. It's very scenic but you're basically paying for the privilege of being on a film set - Oceans 12.

“Horrible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Nice landscape and charm but it's like a public swiming pool full of people bathing and getting sun on the rocks.
