The beach is lovely. There are various watersports available here also. My boyfriend and I took the jet ski out for 30 minutes, must have been a highlight of our holidays! Recommend!

Nice clean beach, lots of chairs to rent as well as large areas to set up your own. Lifeguards present and diligent. Little cafe with fresh fruit, salads, sandwiches and drinks for reasonable prices. Went back a few times, would recommend.

Spent several days on the beach. Clean and well maintained but unfortunately not a sand beach. Has lots of broken shell and the water drops in depth very quickly so may not be suitable for families.
