We went there on a day tour and it was too crowded for me and my family! We prefer a more quiet and relaxed atmosphere. So if you plan to go, book early with any travel and tour agency to get a good deal and go there early. You also need a good car as the location is far from the city, with steep and winding roads. The beach is also far from the entrance of the resort which makes it more difficult. We did not enjoy the meal that came with the day tour, it was bland and in small portions. We ended up ordering more. Hope they change the menu for the day tour.
We did have fun though! My kids aged 1 and 4 yrs enjoyed playing in the powdery white sand beach. My husband and I liked taking pictures of the limestone cliffs and kayaking at the sea. Going for a day tour was enough for us.
