  • A beautiful beach, in which a small pool has been set up so that people can swim. But watch out for the power of the waves!!!

  • It is certainly not a very passable beach for swimming... despite his pelvis! but so good for family picnics!

  • Probably the best beach in the South to observe the sunset. Public grilling facilities invite for family gatherings, the numerous palm trees are solid enough for you to hang your hammock and there are sporting facilities available. With enough parking spaces and even an auxiliary parking along the road up to the village you‘ll find a parking spot easily, even at busy times. As others mentioned before, due to the presence of sharks, bathing is very limited.
  • Pretty beach but rocky and swimming is only in 3 foot deep protected pool because of sharks, very busy and restrooms and falling apart.
