This is a great beach to go to and is therefore very popular. It is very shallow water for 25m plus so is good for children. There are sun beds plus to hire at very reasonable prices.

Amazing Beach. It's not as pink as you see on pictures, but very beautiful anyways. The trip to the Beach is a bit scary. 🌞

At the end of the dunes there is a rocky outcrop covered in sand which gives you a 360 degree panoramic view of the beaches and hills. The only problem would be if you have mobility problems as the climb up and down are not...More
