Its a nice patch of sand, but thats all it is....tiny really. There are quite a few people wanting to be here compared to the capacity and size of it. Having said that, the beach cafe is really good for breakfast/brunch!

Not really sure why this is such a tourist trap, but anything for a photo op to say "I was here"....just walk by it and take a selfie and move on...would not wait in that crazy line.

It is a private beach and has European rules for sunbathing. It is not clothing optional but does allow topless; just like all of Europe and most everywhere except US public beaches.
