This beach was down the cliff below our hotel. There is a beach bar selling snacks and umbrellas etc are for hire. It is very rocky and perhaps not ideal for bucket-and-spaders. The views from the walk down are spectacular but not necessarily for the...More

Follow signs since it is easy to get lost. Once there, views are spectacular, beach is clean and the bar offers some amenities. It was also not crowded when we visited.

The beach and the approach to it is certainly spectacular. The very large round stones were quite unique and paths had been made with flat stones, however they did not go to the edge of the sea when we visited. Having just come from the...More
