Gorgeous beach...littered which is a shame. Visited in April. Water chilly but so crystal clear. Little cafe. Food nice. Mezze and kebabs. Worth a visit to the beach.

A lovely sandy beach. Worth a visit. There is a basic cafe there but we did not try it. Had a walk along the beach which was very pleasant

Visited this beach to see the turtles, and we're not disappointed. Lovely place clean and friendly. Good beach cafe. Best to get there by 🚗 or the 🚌. And take cash to leave a donation for the hard working volunteers.

To see this when the turtles are scuttling across the beach must be wonderful, and the beach itself is long and golden. However, the facilities here are not the best. The café is basic, and not the cleanest I've seen, whilst the toilets were even...More

Nice beach but we sat outside at the restaurant and no one cane to offer us a menu or if we wanted a drink. After 15 mins we left. Beach good restaurant poor. It appeared to have good kids facilities.

It was coming to an end last week when we were there. Most nests had hatched. Still worth asking locally.
