Nice sand and clear water, lots of Chinese seafood restaurants and no beach bars as we have in Europe, they have very loud 'music' at night. Sunbeds belong to hotels so you may need your own parasol etc. Dolphin sports bar on main road was...More

Easy accessible, public city buses in a walking distance. Many shops, bars and restaurants in the area. Clean, with lifeguards on site. In February it was a bit busy - mostly Chinese and Russians.

Famous beach area with music bars on the side. The only downside is that they close down the music bars quite early.

Quite clear water and a "promenade" in the shadow behind the sand all the way. Many restaurants in the shadows at well. Lifeguards were present. The water looked blue at most times, many people there who cannot swim and try to defeat the waves with...More
