This is an excellent beach with wonderful views, great spaces and clear water. Even when the weather is not so good it is wonderful to stand and watch the waves crashing onto the beach.

Ideal for families with attended lifeguards and play facilities for children. It's also right next to cafes, bars, ice cream and crepe establishments too. It's all there - enjoy.
