  • The Most touristic huge beach in the center of the city. From the great I can mention the chic sand and gently sloping entrance to the water. But the minuses for us was much more, so we later chose the beaches away from the center, but suit us many times More. First, parking is paid, secondly, noise and gum is incredible, the music of all the restaurants, standing right near the sand, thirdly, full beach and the merchants of all sorts of crap, fourth, full of people smoking on the beach, and not The tobacco. In Short, we had enough time for the whole long holiday!
