Afternoon visit to this beach. Very large and great for swimming and snorkelling. Great sunset. A little noisy because full of families.

A really nice beach, quite small with a nice view and not too crowded. Relatively cheap sunbeds (€8 for two beds and a parasol for the day). The snack bar has a nice seating area and a variety of food and drink at ok prices.
