  • There was a sand beach for many years there. Now it is a place rocky but beautiful at the same time. It's nice to walk but not can put to sea from there.

  • Nice ride during the day, but not advisable during the evening or night. A pity, but it is one thing to allow the diversity of thought, and another having to tolerate the Biologica - or other more serious - as opportunistic thieves, drug addicts, and all fauna of dubious origin and customs
