“beautiful beach”(33 reviews)

Not bad, but This is just a small beach to me. The beach is white, the water is not dirty. Some restaurants are conveniently just in front of the beach. I don’t see any special reason to choose here over other beaches around here.

The other bus company Golden Arrow might go that way. There is always the train but only if you’re adventurous as it is apparently dangerous.
