Good alternative during busy Seasons where the white beach will be packed. Still a good venue to chill under the sun and soak in the sea

You could see right to the bottom, loved it. There was a nice little restaurant that we got to eat in very cool. I wouldn't want to spend much more than an hour, as there's not a lot to do.

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.
