It is a gorgeous beach but facilities are small and crowded and there are no beach chairs and umbrellas. You have to walk down a lot of chairs. So although stunning, it depends on what you are looking for.

The beach is lovely. The sun beds are only 10 Euro for the day . There is a towel included and are very nice . The parking could be a little difficult as it's a popular beach but that's all part of the adventure .

Good beach with ample parking. Steep descent to the beach. Beach is quite small and gets busy late morning. Good for snorkelling
