This beach is not my choice. Too many tourist that stand like ants on the beach or are in the sea. Go at least two beaches south to be in a more relaxed space.

Nice sand. Clean beach. And water is warm and clean. Only problem is that many speed boats come in and out all day. Dangeres for people swimming. 5PM all restaurants put tables on the beach with candle light. Very romantic.
