  • Wow. There is incredible. There's the river meeting with the sea! It's a quiet, secluded place, almost an oasis. Quiet and clean sea. Well worth knowing!

  • It's an out-of-the-box place, it's a paradise, the sea temperature is to be all day even at night.? unforgettable sunsets

  • The meeting of the river with the sea is beautiful. The sunset is fabulous and the raft ride is worthwhile. Just don't think it's cool to catch the seahorses, a hint for those who want to see is go on the hippocampus project
