  • Great unspoilt beach. Perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving. The fish are amazing. Sunbed hire on the terrace if needed. Toilets and a cafe.
  • What a delightful place! Off-street parking close by, clean and clear water, soft sand, shallow waters without the sudden drop for kiddies, fish that can be enjoyed watching via snorkeling (or above water via feeding bread like we did), diving and swimming for the more advanced types amongst us. Absolute gem.
