This crescent shaped beach is a popular spot with tourists and it’s obvious why. The sand is soft, the waters clear and warm and there are plenty of sunbeds. Just a short walk from the sand are local cafés and bars for refreshments, or if you wait, the chances are someone will come along to sell you an ice-cream where you lay. Bliss.
