This is a really nice place to spend the day it's on the beach but set back a little. A haven away from all the hustle of the beach, nice comfy su beds, shower facilities too. The food is really good too we spent all day here

Excellent! specially if you looking for a less commercial secluded place with beach access. The beach is cleaner and less populated compared to other beaches. Great food and ambience to boot
