Sandy, clean beach right in the old town. A lovely view, calm water. Good for families. Teens enjoy it in the evenings.

One of the better beaches in the area. Beautiful views, not DIRECTLY on the road and it has a small, shallow protected bay to swim in with only the softest sand under your feet! Quite a small beach so best to go early.
