What a beautiful sandy beach. Sand so thin and nice. Water is so clean and nice to swim. My girlfriend loved this beach, we will come back next year. And definitely come to September not really crowded. 5 * beach.

One of the most beautiful beach in the world. Very suitable for the families with little kids. There are too many shops nearby. You can rent long chair and sun umbrella
