Went here many times for walks and sunbathing and found a very nice sandy beach with lots of secluded spots and the water was at a very comfortable temperature.

I went walking here every morning it is great, so quiet and clean. There is a couple of beach bars and deck chair hire spots and spaces to swim. Naturally, it is beautiful.
