  • Part of the fun is also that you can choose between sunbathing in your latest bathing fashion bikini or - if inclinged to do so - go to the part where you don't need any clother at all - as god create...  more »
  • The dunes are absolutely beautiful to see. You can walk the well trodden path up to the dunes and if you have the energy walk up the dunes and down the other side - don't let that put you off it shoul...  more »
  • Beautiful sand dunes extending on a huge area, sometimes very high, interspersed with oases with Palm trees, black beaches or Rocky valleys. You need to prepare for the more than two-hour walk around if we want to move them all, the farther from the Centre of the beautiful and less crowded. Along the ocean dotted with many different beaches, wild, nude, LGBT, with pebble and outlets organized with bars and lounge chairs. A few viewpoints from the towns do not make up such experience but after a few minutes of the March of their size and appreciate. Place well worth a visit.

  • Great beach. Very wide and long with sections for all tastes if sun bathers. The dunes give a special athmosphere that make the place different from all other beaches. It's not for snorkelers, the sand is thin making the water not that clear. The lack off rocks also nakes the place lacking of marine life. Overall is well worth a beach day.
  • A special beach to say the least very good and clean
  • Beautiful long, long beach.
  • New beds and umbrellas what would be especially significantly longer than currently available again. Otherwise is here a good mood with often nice views.
