The first question you will ask when you see these pebbles is: "How did they all get so round edged?" It's true they are difficult to walk on, but they will never cut your feet due to the perfectly rounded shape! There are many areas...More

Beautiful pebble beach, clean and so peaceful. Anyone could visit here, go swimming with family and friends with cheap cottages or rather stay here for few days. There's a beach Hotel near the area, don't worry :)

They cook good food and staffs are very friendly. The place is good for relaxing, a bit pricy but its worth. You can also do a hike for 380 steps and reach the other side of the mountain.
