Very nice and quite beach close to the port and downtown. There is a nice restaurant at the beach DAgostina with reasonable prices and very good food. There was a noisy event during the weekend but on MOnday...it was excellent.

Wonderful beach away from the crowds. Lively, with lots of trees an places in both the shade and the sun. Beachside restaurants, camping spaces. Great place to read a book, relax, and have a picnic.
