Really beautiful beach with decent waves. There are a lot of surf schools performing their lessons but it's still enough space because the beach is quite big. The rocks are keeping out the wind and also during hot days there are not that many people.

This surfers beach is incredible! Loooooong sandy beaches, amazing rocks and huge waves, but watch out, the sea is literally Freeeeeezing and the undertow is very strong. Amazing beach restaurant with fresh fish and lots more, the best food we had this holiday was here.
