You can reach it on foot from the center along the promenade in about 10 minutes. Once you arrive, a wonderful pebble beach awaits you with a relaxed atmosphere and lots of authentic flair. Both holidaymakers and locals like to come here to spend their days by the sea. This is mostly because this beach is never really overcrowded, even in the high season.
