Unfortunately I found very overlooked part equipped with umbrellas and chairs, while the free one sprinkled with dirt of various kinds. We stayed in one of the bars behind the beach that runs a part of the bathhouse: was just as "desolate", with only one person at the counter which was doing nothing (however didn't bother to fix the room that needed cleaning). Ignoring will be depended on the fact that we were at the end of the season (September), but I must say that in all other beaches on the island, I didn't find any of it. Sorry because it would be a piece of heaven.show original
