Beautiful, clear beach. Lovely walkway. Great shops lining the street. Very relaxing area when it's not the height of summer. We were there in October and totally enjoyed our time.

The boulevard is super clean. Enough terraces to have a Nice drink OR a snack of ice cream at the gelataria. Superb view over the ocean, the beach and the cliffs at your left hand side. The boulevard is super wide at the end there...More

We´ve been there last September. A great beach with an outstanding infra-structure and at the same time, amazingly clean and calm! Wanna go back!!

Decent beach, gets very crowded on the weekend. Further down you can rent some shades. Quite a few cafes near by.

Very calm beach in relation to the sea, but busy with people, in particular August. Otherwise this is the perfect place to spend a nice week away between May-June

Nice views to cliffs in the east and fortalezza to the west. Just dont look behind too the dystopic hotel complex... As its best in early mornings before 11 and after 18 o'clock. Otherwise this in-the-middle-of-the-town-beach is too crowdy.
