Lovely swimming and sunbathing areas among the lava flows. Specific and safe areas for young children, divers and experienced swimmers. Also nearby cafes for drinks, food and icecreams! A unique and beautiful place.

The rock pools are naturally beautiful and safe. We swam in the deep parts of the rock pool and thoroughly enjoyed it.
