Nice Beach, clean and calm water, ideal for swimming. No big waves, and the water can be cold sometimes. But better in every way than Geriba beach wich is overcrowded and with old chairs.

I really like this beach, the ocean is calm and you can relax there. It's good for family as well since they can play on the water better than other places with heavier waves. The beach is really beautiful!
