Plenty of room to sit on the beach if you dont want the crowds! Warm clear water invites after a day at sea!

Directly located in the Cruise Center you will find this beach. Most guests of the cruise stay here, so it gets very busy. You will find all kind of facilities nearby.

Beach visited mostly only through Cruise ships passengers therefore overcrowded, overpriced facilities with view of Cruise ships, nevertheless clean beach with clear turquoise water.
