This beach is well worth the walk down the long staircase. The path is modern and well maintained and so safe to use. The beach is beautiful and when we were there lifeguards in attendance. Visit if in the area.

Cosy beach , large, great view, not crowded. Many seashells. The stairs to get there have been renewed so it is good to get there. Good to swim. Lifeguards are there too.

Me and my husband stayed in a hotel nearby. Used to visit this beach quite often. Beach is a cozy place hidden between two cliffs. There's one more cliff which stays separately in the sea, this one makes this beach unique. The only disadvantage is...More
