This is a really great beach with lots of interesting caves and pathways if you make your way through from the town side. Much recommended. Take your camera!

Nice little beach if your hotel is on this side, enough space. It seems no amenities such as bathroom/shower on the beach however there are public toilets on street just above.

I never wanted to leave the water. The views were breathtaking. If you go earlier in the day you can go into the caves and tunnels as well. A must see! A restaurant and bathrooms available as well at the beach.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen or been to in my life. It doesn’t get overly crowded and the water was clear.
