  • Clean, warm water. Handicapped accessible. Showers.
  • I would give it the five stars if it wasn't for the bird's poop that expell a disgusting smell. Despite that you can find places to eat, to sit, to play sports such beach tennis, beach soccer, beach volley and so on. There is a little zoo, the casino is also there and just across the street you can find some restaurants more settled. It's a swimmable beach so daily you'll see body swimmers, surfers, swimmers and such. Nice place to spend the morning or the evening. It's hot on sunny days so watch out.
