  • Cottages and apartments with sea views are less than 5 minutes away. Swell suitable for swimming. Not as much dangerous current as on other beaches in the Region. Young people are always observed in suspicious groups, and little police surveillance. There have been assaults on drivers. I've never had any problems, but I'm going to swim for 1 hour, and I'm retiring.

  • Beautiful beach. Small and a little dirty. Too many buildings, it is impossible to admire the beauty of the place without the huge buildings covering everything. It's a horror what real estate at the site did. They covered and filled HUMEDALORS with soil, cement and debris wetlands to make more buildings in ORILLAS of the sea... Frightening
