A nice beach with white sand and clear blue water. Also had a nice promenade to walk along. You find more beaches and hotels along the front. Well worth a visit.

Nice place good weather but not a massive amount to do. If you the type of person to stay in a hotel for 2 weeks it's great. If your looking for something to do I wouldn't recommend
