Really well managed Roman ruins in the most spectacular setting you can just imagine sardines being salted and the aqueduct bringing fresh water,also great seafood restaurants just outside the area.

The dune is really big, the restaurant nearby offers reasonable food. The sea is clear and it’s all but crowded.

Amazing beach. You can walk for miles going south. Good restaurants on the edge of the beach. Also well worth visiting the excavated Roman town - very informative museum and displays

Nice wide beach. No one on it when we were there in February but still worth a quick visit. Make sure to see the Roman ruins one side of the beach. You cannot enter it from the beach but it is worth the journey around...More

This is a stunning beach ideal for swimming and sunbathing. There are wonderful sand dunes at one end of the beach which you can climb to get a view across to Africa.
