  • Nice beach, but small. The water temperature is very interesting, but there are many stones that hurt the feet. The only restaurant there is very expensive, and the jetski too. I took the car up there and after I made a little path of 10 minutes walk to the beach, but there are other paths too. The beach is 10 minutes from the Centre by car.
