“Busy and crowded”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Nice beach and the scenic was great. Clear water and beautiful sand. Long, shallow water - great for kids I suppose. But as the title is saying, crowded and busy (on a Sunday in June). Sellers all over, a lot of people and it's very expensive if you want to an umbrella and sun beds (€ 20-25!!).

Looking forward to visit some of the other beaches in the days to come.

“Small beach, gets busy”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Some free parking, but expect a walk. Very busy when we visited out of season and in mid week. Clean beach, but lots of sellers walking around beach continually pestering you to buy.
