    Beautiful beach, with a great extension and great views, for what it's worth walking along the beach and find out all her charms.

    It's a beautiful beach! Full of coconut palms and tropical trees. The sea is calm, warm and with some corals which are not anything special, are frequented by some colourful fish. Well worth the visit.
