  • A trip to this beach was planned, we arrived early, the beach was nearly empty. Spread out its modest couches and decided after swimming a little bit Tan ... I was in bliss and happiness, despite the smell of eggs, until someone came to me on the ankle! I just walked))) when I raised my head, I saw that half an hour that we lay on the beach was left living places, and people tried to pass somehow to the water between bodies) water nice, I liked that its temperature is smoothly changed, but about the cliff it is better not to swim there beats a cold water source, in my opinion it is dangerous, can reduce muscles, etc. In general the place very beautiful, picturesque Beach if you look at the top, a pleasant sensation on the skin after bathing, but razlezhivat'sja here is not exactly worth))

  • the Cove is like a niche under the Ridge looming, the sea looks of the "usual" blue magnificent, but not all, indeed the beauty has to come when floating a few dozen meters from the beach you feel pleasantly struck by a current of warm water, smelling of sulfur, which from the submerged part of the high cliff whitish leaking into the sea.

  • As for the release of sulfur, the water is opaque and the blue is fluorecente. The visual is just wonderful!!! The beach is cosy and pleasant climate. The waters are very calm, but the sand has many rocks and you must be careful when entering the sea not to get hurt.
