Stayed here for 4 nights in an apartment overlooking the sea. Not full of tourists, mainly locals visiting for the day and to eat. Fairly good fish restaurants, reasonably priced.

Stopped here for lunch today. Lovely little beach full of locals enjoying a Sunday in the sun. Good choice of restaurants and a beautiful little chapel.
