It's a nice U-shaped beach with clean sand that is thicker than usual, so it does not stick to your skin too easily. Its waters are blue, transparent, and very cold; this beach is one of the most visited because it does not have big or strong waves. So it's perfect for relaxing and for certain water sports. But watch your step when you enter into the waves, because the sea gets deep very quickly. Also, there are many small bars, clubs and nightlife spots, so this beach is mostly preferred by young people seeking for party, rather than by families with children: now and then some clubs take the party outside, to the beach itself. There is lots of parking space (the usage fees are regulated by the local municipality, and it's usually a flat fee) and its restaurants offer dishes prepared with seafood provided by local fishermen.
