Visited the beach in August. It is a quiet place yet still has some crowd and nice atmosphere. The water is nice and clear and the beach has a lot of volleyball fields, and cafeterias.

Visited the beach late autumn. It was still almost 24 degrees but beach was almost empty. The shore was strange because you couldn’t hear the waves until you were really near them. Would like to visit again when it’s “more summer”.
