Difficult to park close to the beach but with nice sand and a great bar close to the beach. The water is very shallow so it’s a good place for games in the water and good for small kids.

This is a nice sandy beach, a little bit crowded in high season but this is to be expected. You have bars and restaurants just nearby

Really enjoyed the beach water. I usually don't get myself totally dunked, but this was so fun with warm water and great waves. No need to worry about rocky beach, or sharks! Water and beach was clean. Only tricky part was parking. The road is...More

Real sandy beach, pretty long but the most is booked and equiped by hotels, rest is overcrowded very much, real head on head. No parking places and pricy bar.

Nice place but hell of cars around, spent a day to find some parking (but on the road, not real one). All "offical" parking not available or already full at 10:00 in the morning. Beach ok for kids, sand and restorants near by.

We were a small group of painters who with the help of our Italian speaking teacher found this place, and absolutely fell in love with the scenery, the food, the food and all. June is a peaceful month and not too hot.
