Definitely better than cas abou beach. Less rocky. Once you get into the deeper part it is more sand than rocks. Beautiful beach and lots of chairs and space. They also have a bar and restrooms.

The beach itself is very beautiful, but could be very crowed. It has a restaurant but can be difficult to get a seat in there, specially if there are groups of divers also looking for lunch. There are a few souvenir shops as well. You...More
