Beautiful sand beach close to Palm Garden Hotel, with lots of beachside restaurants and pubs nearby featuring Happy Hour with good prices. Fantastic sunsets over the beach. Well worth a visit.

The sand here is pure white and the sea is very shallow so you can walk quite a distance with the water just coming up to the waist. Chairs and umbrellas are available at 20 dollars per day, the beach does get crowded but well...More
