  • This beach is a must for all the waves love. Hardly dangerous currents! Everything else doesn't count.... hardly any shade, no real place, many closed bars and shops. A shop still had on it, a small cafe/panderia with crispy buns... ingenious.

  • It’s one of my favorite place in the area. There’s a special atmosphere there. It’s very relaxed. You have a variety of small restaurants and the beach is huge & wide. It’s also a little paradise for surfers as it is quite wavy. However, not the best for swimmers, except if you’re lucky enough to stay in a place with a nice pool. Then, it’s paradise! The best place to relax and charge yourself with positive energy!
  • Beautiful beach about 3 kilometers wide inside a cove. Great for surfing or just enjoying the beach. Used to be completely virgen but now has a lot of beach resorts and amenities . Take your pick on whether that’s good or bad.
