The beautiful sandy beach is cleaned late at night and early in morning with a tractor, and it shows. The life saving staff are professional and always attentive. I was stung by a jellyfish and they treated me perfectly. I can't praise this beach enough

Nice and clean beach with the best ice cream shop in the world the "Heladeria". Can get very full in summer months. Good time to go is either early morning or lunch time when people leave.

I agree with foxyDevon, you can't go wrong on either beach. If you are staying near the town end of La Fossa try the Capri for breakfast - tremendous value.
