Really liked this beach - friendly and with easy access to bars and restaurants - our two year old loved it and easily found space for sand castles and digging

I couldn’t wait to visit this beach after seeing the beautiful pics on here. Was imagining an idyllic hideaway. How wrong I was! When the other pics were taken I do not know! This beach is small and extremely overcrowded. We went two days as...More

Busy beach. They don't clean it. No bins for the rubbish. You have to pay if you want to shower and clean the sand.

Nice beach if you want to get away from massive Euro-trash tourism. Be there before 09 o'clock if you want to reserve a sunbed with parasol for about 5 euros. But no need if have your own parasol, you will always find your own spot...More

Sheltered beach with some natural shade. Interesting rock formations and at low tide you can walk along to more secluded bays. Lots p.s seaweed in places. You can easily walk over the headland to other beaches, e.g. Falesia. Toilets are available close by.

We parked in the centre and walked down. Nice beach. Sandy. Lots of handy bars and restaurants. If you walk along the bay the next cove is quieter.

horrid beach when you consider there are other nicer beaches around that are not so crowded full of pebbles cutting up your feet or loads of seaweed entangling your feet when taking a dip in the sea.
