Beach suited for families with younger kids as the water is fairly calm and the sand is fine. Beautiful surroundings and easy access to shops and restaurants

Very clean, warm and shallow water perfect for families with small children. Also during our stay they set up a movie theatre one night on the beach for everyone to enjoy.

I agree with foxyDevon, you can't go wrong on either beach. If you are staying near the town end of La Fossa try the Capri for breakfast - tremendous value.
