This is a beautiful beach with clean waters and the shipwreck definitely adds to the picture. There is also a great beach bar and tavern.

You can get to the beach and there's a sandbar so you can walk out to the wreck. Astonishing boat, with a smuggler's history.

Pleasant beach, good for a swim, long beach walk and enjoy this shipwreck. Nice landmark in this area. Very pleasant restaurant nearby with sunbeds under the palm trees. Fun for a daytrip.

Never been in a beach before where you could walk and see a shipwreck. Cool to see and take pictures. Although it’s forbidden people swim/snorkle close to the ship, although there’s nothing to find.

We didn't know in advance that the shipwreck was there. It was a nice surprise. It is a quite impressive views both from the cliff when reaching the beach from the south and also from the beach
