  • There is super good and fast service. The guys in yellow T-shirts They are extremely serviceminded-but okay you also pay overpriced for chairs which are rather uncomfortable and a parasol. We were 4 and rented 4 chairs and 1 parasol for €60 yes then it's paid. There are not many sellers and they are not intrusive in any way. All in all an OK beach outside many people but only rent a parasol for €12 and grab a large towel.

  • Just amazing !
  • A beautiful beach with great restaurant options. Felt a bit calmer than the beaches near the casino.
