Love the beach here, although small it's usually not over crowded. Usually buying a coffee gets you a beach chair and great location for a lot of awesome restaurants.

Close to great restaurants. Beach wont get wider than maybe 40 meters and is not very long. But there's sun beds for everyone. Nice sand, nice water, nice people.
