Its an intact beach, you can reach it on a dirt road. Nearby the beach you can find a great place where you can go trekking in the nature.

Natural beach, sandy, wonderful waves, sea in different colors. Turtles nests, sand lilys, dark hot rocks... Keep this place clean and safe!

We visited here in October 2017, it was well worth the drive. A practically deserted sandy beach with crystal clear waters. Unfortunately we missed the turtles by about 3 weeks, they release at end of September. The last few miles is along an unpaved track...More
