First thing I noticed when visiting the beach was how clean and maintained it was. We did not go in the water, as there had been an incident the previous day of tourist getting into trouble and required to be rescued.

We had a good time and a nice swim at this pleasant beach. Waves were quite rough though. During October, the beach was also not too full.

Omg. The beach is stunning.. Beautiful walk along to each cave..a swim in the beach is so relaxing with the scenery. When you finish the board walk down or up the hill the beach view is stunning..

Clean and never seems to get too crowded! Sun loungers are a bit expensive at 30 euros a day but other than that it was perfect!
