  • nice sandy beach but little else has a snack bar but wasn't open when we visited. There are toilets but not the most salubrious. 
  • I frequent this beach Numerous​ times a year. It is one of my favourite places (as is the island) Always a lovely place, though I would recommend going off season, as peak summer months are just too b...  more »
  • Is pretty overrated I think. Quite small, no 100-metre long sandy beach with a sculpture on the beach. The beach was not red, but yellow - orange. The beach itself is nice so far. It rocks under water are however, so bathing and swimming is not easy. The access on an exceptionally pretty ordinary road is possible directly on the beach, there are some few parking spaces. On the beach there is a restaurant, which was however closed in November. The alleged "Calypso Cave" above the Bay, which is a rip-off, affords beautiful views of the beach from above.
