We visited in October and I’d advise not to go earlier or it might be too crowded. It was a bit... read more

You can take some amazing photos of the beach but to actually swim there during the summer can be pretty tricky. It was really busy in August, so we literally put down our stuff on the top of a rock and just headed to the...More

We visited in October and I’d advise not to go earlier or it might be too crowded. It was a bit smaller than we expected from the photo’s, but still very nice. The water was as clear as expected and still warm enough to go...More

Astonishing cove. Sitting on the beach I think it results more beautiful than it seems from the bridge view. A place of a timeless beauty. Really fascinating.

Small, rocky but very lovely beach, hidden among rocks. From the cliff, great views of the sea and the town as well as crystal clear water whose blue merges with the blue of the sky

This is a stunning place to visit. It is a hidden gem in the middle of a historical town. There are caves all around if you like to go adventuring.
