Beach is very good. For smaller children or non-swimmers it shelves very quickly into the sea, so out of depth quickly. Sand gets very hot - wear flip flops or beach shoes to the waters edge. Plenty of beach bar/restaurants to hire fixed umbrellas and...More

I truly enjoyed this beach. It wasn't crowded and for 5 euros you can rent a lounger and an umbrella. It was quiet and the restaurants across the street were very reasonable and delicious too.

We enjoyed the time we have spent at the beach. Umbrella and sunbeds are free as long as you order drink/food with the respective restaurant. Went in the morning so we could enjoy the calmness of the beach.

Beautiful black sand beach! The water is very clear but also quite cold. I recommend water shoes because the black sand is hot and coarse. The snorkeling was ok with not really that much to see. There are plenty of chairs and umbrellas. You only...More
