A long, clean, sandy beach off a lovely promenade with bars and toilets. Across the road from bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and hotels

Nice clean beach with loungers... Food and drinks served from cafes and tavernas across the street. The further from town, the lower the cost of loungers! 10 - 5 euros per day
