Crystal clear water with gorgeous view to the sea. Stoney at the start but then sand and warm sea. Few loungers and not much shade so bring a parasol. Small cafe behind

Nice beach with crystal clear waters and shadows offered by the nearby trees. Nearby is a canteen where you can get some food & drinks. Visit when the wind does not blow from the North to better enjoy it...
