Very beautiful, long stretch of white sand beach and crystal blue water. Bars/restaurants will serve you right on the sand. Limited parking.

I visited this place just to watch the sunset. It was an amazing scenery. The area is quite windy. An ideal place for surfers I must say. There are also countless restaurants, shops and bars nearby.
