  • Nice beach, just a pity there are a lot of stones close to entering the water at some moment of the day. Water temperature is great. A lot of movement on the beach, this is nice. Not to busy though
  • I spent time here with my girlfriend and her family. It's a beautiful location, easily caters to international tourists and has a great variety of food and shops on offer at both the low and high ends. I can't recommend a visit to this place enough, it was truly breathtaking! It's also a top windsurfing destination, so the international community here is vast, if you have a chance for sure check out the German restaurant!
