5 = Superb! Best we visited. Worth going far out of our way to swim there again
4 = Very good. We would go out of our way to swim there again

  • Beach berm:
    Sand
  • Seafloor:
    Sand
  • Water rating: 4/5 about
  • Access:
    Good = Paved road all the way to the beach. Parking near the beach
  • Amenities:
    Restaurant at the beach

    The restaurants located on the beach are very expensive and the food not very good (especially the buffet-style restaurant that dominates the beach). A walk further up the road would yield better and more reasonably priced restaurants.

    Bar at the beach
    Town within walking distance
    Organized Beach (trash collection, umbrellas, showers etc.)
    Hotel on the beach
  • RV / Camper Accessibility:
    Site suitable for parking for the day, but not for camping

  • Some beach areas might be suitable for nude swimming.
    Some nudists occupied the South end of the beach.
  • Snorkeling:
    Sandy sea floor, but the rocks at teh south and north ends of the beach are good for snorkeling
  • Notes:
    It can get very crowded during July and August, and finding parking can be difficult.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
