Beautiful "hidden" beach surrounded with cliffs, clean sea, especially peaceful during June and September; out of the peak season.

A beautiful spot straight from a National Geographic. Wear good shoes to hike to and from. Also, it's a good investment to buy an umbrella as there isn't any shade. A mat to lie on the rocks is good too. Oh yes and water shoes...More

My partner and I decided to spend a day on this beach. It was packed with tourists but worth a visit. Take water and food with you. 15 minutes walk from parking. If you are lucky you can spot griffon, endemic species that still lives...More

From little village Orlec you take a small narrow road down to the parking where you have to leave your car and then take a steep pathway to the beach for about 10min. The water is beautiful, crystal clear and the small beach is surrounded...More
