fabulous beach

Miles of clean white sand with loads of room for everyone (when we were there anyway). If you want to spend a day doing absolutely nothing this is ideal

Clear sea and sand, few naked locals but it's stunning. Buy a cheap beach towel instead of the beds they're pricey

This is a fantastic beach, very clean and well maintained. There are toilets and foot showers along the beach and many points of access. A good 5 mile walk along the beach or jog if you prefer as there is plenty of room on this wide,long and sandy beach. There are some deckchairs for hire and a few refreshment places... More

This is a vast and clean beach ideally located for beachgoers. The beach is clean and the sea is clear and blue. We took a walk on the beach on a sunny day, Thursday, December 29th and the sun was shining and brisk wind was blowing from the south. Despite of this windy afternoon it was not chilly and we...

Well worth a visit you can walk for miles. Be aware there are a few naturists on the beach but it is allowed and discreet, Keep a look out for the chipmunks they are very friendly and curious.

It was unfortunately too windy so we couldn't enjoyed the sea as it was a red flag. The kids couldn't enjoyed as it was really too windy. Chair and parasol have to be lend every day... Otherwise it might be a very nice beach during summer time and with no wind...

Broad beach that goes on for many kilometres. It is mad of very fine sand, yellow and black, showing the island's volcanic origins. The beach is separated from the streets by a green protected zone, which is inhabited by the local chipmunks and bird species. Off season, it's a wonderful, calm place to enjoy! High season it looks as it's... More

Although windy beach the water temperature assures there's no need for towel :) The beach chairs are a bit expensive and unfortunatelly they're private which means that even if you're at a nice fancy hotel you'll still have to pay for this extra.

What more could you ask for in a beach?? This is a stunning blue flag beach with white sand and crystal clear turquoise water. There are plenty of shops and a beach bar nearby that serves cold beer and lovely food. Paradise.
