  • It is not a very spacious Beach, but it is quite comfortable, restaurants on the beach, but in a part you can be simply taking Sun.

  • Good for children, calm waters and came natural pools, the tourists love. Sand is short, which provides the sit on the chairs and feel the water beating on the feet. The downside is that the chairs of the bars invade sand that almost no spare space. Expensive restaurants.
