Great hike down a dusty track, goat and sheep flocks everywhere. Lovely scenery. Nice beach at the end but gravelly not sandy.

A great beach to visit!!! Easy walking in the canyon, about 20', no problem for young children. You can get water, coffee, juice etc at the canteen at the parking to the entrance of the canyon.

Very beautiful and quiet place, we enjoyed it very much! It can be reached by car and then a short walk (about 20 minutes). It is worth to be seen!
