  • An incredible Beach suitable for families with small children or teenagers, is also beautiful for photos

  • The Red beach is a small beach suitable for bathing. How little has only one restaurant, no kiosks and not sellers, so it's a reserved Beach, but it's great for kids to play. The beach has a few stones that prioritizes beautiful views. Worth knowing.
