A shout out to the municipality here. Such a wonderful a place to be for a few days and the promenade is a real pleasure to go for a stroll. more »
Beautiful beach with a stunning promenade. Safe swimming areas well patrolled by lifeguards. Very well kept up and clean. Highly recommended. 👍👍👍👍👍 more »
It's a great beach, not too crowded off season and you can definitely capture some great pictures here. It could be a bit cleaner, but hey, when there's not so many excellent and safe beaches around this is 1 to be proud off.
