  • It seems to me that it is a spectacular beach by the view during the day. It is a beach with an international certification for its cleanliness, the waves are strong and very few people dare to get (I do not). Ideal for walking in the Sun and take many pictures. I found only a restaurant where I ate and I was all day, is called Charlies and just at the public entrance of the hotel zone. The restaurant is bad but the service and the prices are on average well, the meal I didn't like anything and hurt me. There are other restaurants and some are accessible, although they are more expensive I think that if is worth the effort because where I was if it is bad. In general the beach is beautiful and all day offers different views, I recommend taking a morning to learn and if you like the emotions strong can even try to enter.
