  • Crystal clear water and beach without waves, white sand, family atmosphere, excellent for those who go with small children and want tranquility. Has sun loungers and umbrellas for rent and several bars, restaurants and shops close by. On the beach are passing some sellers offering massage, handbags, crafts but not enough to be inconvenient, just say you don't want they are not insisting. I really enjoyed and had a very relaxing day with my family.
