  • Disappointed me a little this beach because everyone told me that it was the more beautiful and more warm water. To begin with, the water did not seem warm, maybe just less cold than the rest, but warmer than João Fernandez does not. If you're combi, it leaves you really far (as 10 blocks) which also complicates the visit. It is an average in length and width, it is neither very short nor very large none of the two aspects. There are enough people, but you will find place also. It has some stones in the Middle making a spring type, is good to go and get a better view. The most negative and so you under points, is that all the beach is full of stones into the sea. I tried in several different sectors but at all it was the same problem. You have to put yourself carefully where and how you step, and so the truth is not enjoyed sea in the same way.

  • Large tide beach that goes fast. You must rent parasols and deck chairs that are free if consumerism.

  • Very nice, good food, quiet and clear waters. Fish and turtles to watch the "meguleando".
