This is a very beautiful beach but it very very difficult to swim on the low tide. In summer can be over crowded.

Very small beach, too many rocks, no place for your beach towel, since the place is crowed and/or the sea rises. Also, no place to park your car unless you leave it far away.

The beach is nice, but it was very crowded. There are big stones in the sea and it is quite shallow, so you cannot swim. And beware of the sea urchins.
