  • 5€ for the parking and 7€ per person for access to the beach. Unbelievable. We ended up in a smaller beach next to this for free. Beaches should be for free not paying to get access. I know people will say that the fee is for the services but I couldn't see a single umbrella down there.
  • Wonderful place. Unless you are a hotel guest, to need to park the car on the main road (there is a parking) and walk down for less than 10 minutes. You will be rewarded with a wonderful view and super clean water to dive in. There is no beach, only a small platform and some shadow. Not suitable for babies, but great for everyone else. Can get packed though.
