We went early in the day and spent a couple of hours swimming and relaxing. The beach area is small and it does get crowded and there is no shade. There is a parking lot at the top and a 15/20 minute hike down to...More

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

I recommend to visit this beach to see the beauty of the blue, clear water and white stone. It may take 5-7 minutes on foot to get to the beach but it's worth.

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
