This beach has sort of a steep sand entry and a lot of dark sand so it gets hot really really hot. Keep east and near the rock wall and you can see lots of fish in the narrow rock valleys. It is quite deep near the shore. Not very suitable for young children. 51/5000 Chesto e mnogolyudno. Chesto e vetrovito i ima vÅ­lni. Often it is crowded. It is often windy and has waves.
