Dark sand, little cove created artificially with wave breakers. Excellent and popular place, no room to change but excellent showers. Sea was clean. Easy to park around

Lovely sea, great sand. Really nice place to be with kids, shallow water for the first 20-30 meters or so.

Beaches were clean and the water was crystal clear, water was warm, and the man made coves made bathing safe. Ideal for families.

First it is hard to get a parking spot. Like the little city, the beach area is littered with garbage. Many police patrols, and quite unpleasant tourist. Lots of cheap eats and souvenir shops.
