  • Nice place, unfortunately full of chips we went with buttons. OK, but not great food

  • Visited it a day we had free. Very quiet and beautiful, with clear water and white sand

  • I went through it several times, it is very quiet, with small waves, you can relax under the vegetation and then keep walking
