Natural swimming pool, sounds exciting right. The sea water flows into an enclosure and makes the pool. Absolutely safe. Water is recycled automatically by the waves. Beautiful sea colour and a nice place.

Totally amazing. Really glad we went here. There is a variety of pools and sunbathing areas. It truely is a unique place. The only downfall was the lack of somewhere private to change in to and out of swimwear. There is a small cafe too
