  • We decide to visit this much-lauded beach ... but come on: we Park and we expect 400 steps to go down (... but above all 400 steps then to go up!!) We finally arrive at the beach, but we definitely only: an infernal pit! We go to the bar and there is an endless row. We take a cold coffee (horrible) and no ice cream because you don't have them (But as you are a beach bar?!?) we get through the crowd to find a bit of shadow (because here there are sunbeds and umbrellas!) and we settle in cramped in a corner in the middle of the rest of the people massed. Moral: you palms are also belle...ma the rest is forgettable!

  • Disappointment at this beach so popular. Convenient parking (€2). 10 minutes is not. as listed in lonely planet but it's a nice, steep staircase/trail. There is a beach bar does not rent anything (other error lonely planet that talked about renting. umbrellas and chairs): If you want shade, there are plants. The sea is rough sand/rock and if it looks like a swamp. There is much, much better around. PS: DON'T GO THERE ON SUNDAY!
