Located in the vicinity of the for of the same name, this is a lovely stretch of coastline, during our visit the area was packed but had a peaceful vibe.

Beautiful views, calm water for swimming. Vendors who were not intrusive while offering their items. Historical sites in the vicinity. Lots of restaurant options.

I enjoy very much the beaches when they are open during lockdown but also walks along here with the sunset or a glass of wine on the gay wall is the best.

This is a landmark beach, very famous and usually overcrowded. Today, our visit did not reach the sand: the beach is closed to people. The view, though is prettier than never. It calls you to take advantage of the prettiest sunset in city! Ware your mask, st in the grass and enjoy peace.
