Really nice beach in the quiet resort of Salema. Nice beach bars along the beach front, safe swimming, and never too busy

Although a man made beach, it is picture perfect with calm waters perfect for swimming. Many restaurants along the beach front and the option to rent sun loungers. We are frequent visitors here when we come to stay nearby, there's a pull towards its familiarity...More
