  • The most beautiful place along our southern coast. You can use it throughout the Year. Closer to the sea is not possible to be.  more »
  • Simple basic accommodation and tranquility! Basic amenities are available (e.g. electric power supply) but not drinking water. Come a bit prepared.  more »
