  • One of the most picturesque corners of beach where to go for long walks to watch the sunset with thousands of colors. Clean sea, golden sand.

  • Inviting clear and transparent water color, as only the Mediterranean knows how to be, but the abandonment of some structures (including the Tower) and the dirt of the surroundings of a conurbation grew up without any checks in 70 building, not one decent show for the sea.

  • They say: the very nice beach and the sea invites you to stay but around too much carelessness (dirt and cackling). Maybe our three days in manfria were not placed in the worst era (early August) but I don't know if going back.
