  • I'm a fan of beaches with waves, in addition to being a beautiful beach is excellent for surfing, at any time of the day we always watch the surfers to train, the only weak point is in terms of restoration, there are few restaurants.

  • The beach is very beautiful and very nice location. This is an excellent place to spend a day at the beach and finish watching the fantastic sunset.

  • Spectacular beach, a little windy, but without wind there is no better. With wind can appreciate everything around, and if they take windscreen, in the certainty that they will have a phenomenal day. You can view the saw while you shower of sea or Sun, you can see surfers, you can play football, because you have plenty of room. Go and enjoy.
