This beach is an excellent place for kids, the waves are little and the water is peacefully. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from and some of them have restroom.

We came here a few years back, out of season... it was absolutely delightful and unspoilt as could be. A slice of paradise. A glimpse of heaven!!!
