At the quiet end of star beach ( the better end by far) with lovely beach views, clean pool, attentive staff and good food. Would definitely recommend.

It has a long area of golden sand, the water is very clean and clear, and we didn t find any rock in the water. Has plenty of sunbeds and a fabulous restaurant, here we had a great lunch. During our stay... More

A flag is raised on the beach to indicate swimming safety and there is always... More
