  • Beautiful place to walk both in winter and in summer. With great atmosphere and a long stretch for a walk. View beautiful and ideal for surfing when waves are.

  • This is definitely the tamer and less crowded beach here (Oct/Nov) but also further away from the old town and the angle of the sun wasn't as perfect, so the locals sat facing away from the sea to get a full sun face on.
  • Skimboard and bodyboarding in the piko from the Parrot.
