I personally love this beach. Pros: clear water, not a single rock under the water, view of the castle Cons: Pretty packed during high season so make sure you get there early to get a good spot for your towel!

This beach is freaking beautiful!! Calm clear aqua-blue water with small waves on a beach of trillions of small pebbles (not painful) and a freaking castle on the end to stare at. The water was cold but only at first, plenty of places to eat...More

The beach is very beautiful and clean, but on the weekends it is very crowded. On one side of the beach there are tourist boats, so we dug a bit away on the other side of the beach.

A great beach area surrounded by restaurants, shops and scenery. Plenty of water sport activities and places for a beer, soft drink and bite to eat. The ocean is clear and you can relax on the sand or take a dip. Everybody seems very relaxed...More

I agree with the above thoughts. However, there are boat trips that run from the beach. You can buy your tickets from the booths which are on the beach too. And there is diving too.
