Security is visible and on the ball. At no point did we feel unsafe, and that's a peace of mind tha5s hard to find in this country. more »
It's a great beach, not too crowded off season and you can definitely capture some great pictures here. It could be a bit cleaner, but hey, when there's not so many excellent and safe beaches around this is 1 to be proud off.
