This is a great place for walking and sunbathing. Be careful with what you are eating as we ordered fish and fries and they looked and tasted bad. If you are a foreigner, be aware that they make tips compulsory. Yet, some of the restaurants...More

Mild waves for smaller kids, excellent food cooked on the beach for you along with drinks. You can walk along the beach to another larger beach nearby, or walk to the right and collect shells at the point. Beautiful beach

I really need to go back to this beach. The water is very very tranquil and and super clear. Apparently the water is also extremely salty which is why I was able to float so easily. Definitely worth the visit!
