  • Awesome beach. It has strong winds which makes it great for practicing kite surfing and windsurfing, but the waves are quite tame and allow for a relaxing swim. There are many restaurants right next to the beach where fresh food and cold drinks are available until around 5 pm. All in all a truly enjoyable place
  • Best windy beach in the world.
  • Best place for kitesurfing!!!
