Wonderful beach with great sand and little restaurants nearby. It does get deep pretty quick but our little girl loved it. Very clean and clear water. Water temp is cool but still fine.

We visited in August. The sand is great and very clean. The sea was freezing. Can get quite windy, which means lots of sand around. Few shops and restaurants near by too.

Nice beach to walk and hang out on. Rock formations are interesting and make for nice scenery while walking.
