  • Total paradise if you want to get away from it all. Great food and service from the restaurant. Perfect place to stay. Good exercise walking up the hill.
  • Get to the parking spot early before 11am! Park the first available spot you see Recommend take bus. 2 euros cash only. Don't bother trying to walk down. Great beach. Plenty of marine life to see. I saw an octopus! Snorkeling is great at that beach Restaurants can be avoided. Bring foods or have late breakfast then eat lunch elsewhere
