Today we have visited this nice place. Raw sea the waves crash to the cliffs into the caves. The waves splash over the sands was so spectacular. We enjoyed to be here in the nature. We would come back.

A lovely beach with good parking and relatively easy access via a slope or steps (and the option of sitting on the top and watching the sea). Parasols and sunbeds available to rent.
