Not clear sand but sandy enough, blue loungers are super comfy - the hill is a bit of a killer but you have been lounging around all day.... keep to the left hand side going up as much as possible, less slippy and slightly shorter......More

Nice sandy beach. Always windy though and freezing cold water. Very few hardy bathers brave enough to stay in it. I only managed about 5 mins and that was enough for me.

It is an ok beach but we were not fans. It wasn't a lovely golden sandy beach but quite pebbly and round and the sand was grey. Not a beach for taking your children to. Better choices elsewhere.

Will be staying here next week, just wondered has anyone stayed here before? It’s a 3 bed 2 bath villa with pool and old fashioned furniture and in a cul de sac about 20 mins from the beach? Thank you

Stayed not far from this beach. Walked it a few times during our stay. Plenty of wee areas to lie and bathe.

Went on jet ski and paragliding on this beach. Beautiful beach and nice snack bars to sit on shade. Will definitely return

Not a bad little beach quiet and it is down at the bottom of the road so very little traffic.A couple of bars as well.

Clear water, loads of seaweed and quite a few stones. People do congregate on the beach after the strip closes (which is what we did) thoroughly enjoyed the beach.

Have regularly booked local hotels in this area - many good restaurants and supermarkets - easily accessible. Recommend.
