We watched professional staff building sand sculpture and we walked on a part with black sand, it was nice. Good facilities with toilets and the best; smokers could take a box to have the filter from cigarets in it. They used machines every night to clean the beach, impressive!

If you like long sandy beaches you have come to the right place. Great beach with a bit of waves. A reef stops it from being too wavy.
