  • It felt just like they show a dessert in the movies. Impossibly soft sand, great views and fun place to fool around. Excellent for a grand walking experience! Sometimes it can be very windy. Then the sand blows very hard. Use shades and something to cover mouth if wind is to strong. Go barefoot, so nice!
  • Probably one of the best and particular places in the island... The beach is great, the water is good, even if it is not so clear like the one in Amadores.
  • Lovely sand dunes next to the beach, must see. Be aware that a huge part of shore is a nudist beach.
  • Great scenery. A must walk through when visiting the area.
  • Amazing place to go to! The pool is massive added with a Jecousie and a slide which has a massive queue of excited kids. A bar with Ice Cream and Ice lollies of your choice with Fizzy Drinks such as: Fanta Orange, 7Up, Fanta Lemon, Pepsi and A light Diet Pepsi.At the bar you can ask for Slush Puppies and Coffees or Hot Chocolates and Alcohol. Many Varied activities to do, nearly every day you see people scubo-diving in the pool and they're really fun dance routines entertained by the entertainmemt crew but the food isnt very varied but ither than that It is a wonderful Place to go to and would recommend it!
