It is very cosy and nice beach with very beautiful landscape. The sea is very indicated for surfing but during summer time it can be very calm and war. A lot of nice places to eat and enjoy some time close to nature.

The water is not cold at all. You can rest as it is a quiet beach, with several food services that walk through you. The mountains nearby and the island right in front of view, give you the idea of paradise. Great beach to rest...More
