Had been there for a week to learn surfing, stayed in a nice small hostel. Great coast and clean beaches, couple of nice restaurants and bars, little super market. Very quiet small town, with nice people and a great feel-good-atmosphere!

A very nice beach for kids and for surfers! It is a very clean beach and if you want to eat an ice-cream there´s a great ice-cream bar. You can make a nice walk along the beach!

Windy and clean beach. Never too crowded, as it is very long, it offers many facilities in the surrounding area. The visit will not disappoint you, to spend a beach day or only for a walk in the well conditioned paseo.
