  • Just a beautiful piece of a beach with that 40s-50s vibe
  • It is a beautiful place, but now it is almost unsuitable for walking because of the widely deployed construction works and the sway cyclists who are completely unreadable with the rules of movement. If you are walking with children, be very attentive. The view of the bay is breathtaking. So far, most exits to the sea are closed. What's going to happen in the season, isn't it? Most likely most of the beaches will be paid and access to the sea is also limited.
