Fantastic beach with a very dramatic background of cliffs. Keep an eye on tides cuz at high tide the beach is gone. At low tide you can walk to the next beach. Nude sunbathing is accepted here as 50% of the people where naked and...More

An amazing small, golden sand beach with huge steep cliffs and rolling waves. Not very crowded as most wont make the effort but it is worth it

the local transportation is great and all the schedules are posted on a post. the trick is to look for the signs that have a bus symbol. the are all the same for the stops.
