It is located in an idyllic setting where the trees come right up to the white beach,  where the turquoise colours of the sea make the beach like a  Caribbean beach.

It is a 2.5 kilometre long sandy beach where all kinds of watersports are possible . The beach is well organised and there are beach chairs and umbrellas available.
