Clean beach as in with crystal clear water but beware if you have children with you. There is a sudden depth in the water. There are parts that only 3 meters away from the shore the water is already neck-deep. It is dangerous.

Really nice beach if you go a bit further away from the touristy stalls and make shift cafes. There is a slope to the shore, which with a few good waves can make body surfing pretty fun. I don't know if this is usual for...More
