This is a very nice place to go with the family. The salted water lagoon is quite, with less waves than the open sea (meters away, but really close). Windy, so great for practising some wind water sports (sailing, kitesurf,...).

The lagoon has a safe sandy beach with clear water which is ideal for little ones. There are 3 restaurants and a small mini market within walking distance. Quiet and peaceful in July.
