We went there with our 1-year daughter and she had quite some fun playing in the red sand. The water was a little cold for her but anyway she went to play where the sea meets the beach.

Is it true that the rocks in the water near where you first enter are actually a part of a wall that was once set in the sea to stop the enemy from entering with their boats? I heard this once and wondered if it is true.
