Great people, good food, nice rooms, and a lovely beach which is quiet and most of the times almost "private". When high tide, swimming in the waves is the best! And low tide, strawling to find small fishes, see all other small sealife is a nice way to spend your day. The swimmingpool is nice too and everything you need...
