Well 20 minutes walk and you are in paradise... Maybe bit to crowdy (I walked only to the first beach) and not sandy (full of rocks) but definitely worth to go there and have a few relaxing hours. I will go there again!

This place looks incredible. Water is clear and there are good spots for swimming and tanning. It is also good for hiking. And there are usually just a few people. I recommend.

Great views, transparent water and possibility to find a really lonely place even on weekend. Just continue walking or riding further, do not stop at first crowded spots. Grab some street food and cold drinks there from vans and continue walking. You wont find sand...More
