Beautiful beach. Sea was like a bath. Make sure you wear high factor sun cream. We got burnt. Fantastic place. Meter parking is great as you just pay for however long you want. Not too expensive either.

Too bad that staff was gone by the time we got there. The guy at the check in counter took at least 5 minutes to acknowledge that we... More
