A nice place to walk and spend time with family and friends. Many access points to the beach where the sand is literally squeaky clean. Nice water and clearly marked where it is safe to swim. more »
Amazingly beautiful place, longest beach I have ever been to. It's always full of colour. Some people don't like the shadows from the buildings in the late afternoon, but i think it's a nice break from the sun at the end of the day. The market on weekends is great as well.
