This is a really beautiful, long, sandy beach in a natural, unspoilt amphitheatre of a bay. The eucalyptus and pine trees and greenery surrounding make it idyllic. Barely a building in sight except for about 5 or 6 beach cafe's and bars at intervals. It...More

I went in September to this beach. There were few people and the water was very clean and calm. If you go to the very last beach bar/cafe, it is even quieter and more relaxed.
