Most of the beach areas are not good for swimming because of dirty. The sand is not very comfortable! A lot of bars and a good racing and exercises area.

The beach experience is amazing. Lovely bars and restaurants along the beach - the water can be a bit hit and miss though - it is heavily polluted and also suffers from the currents lifting the sand and creating a cloudy/dirty looking water.
