Sunbeds: Yes

Toilets: Yes

Watersports: No, only boat trips and boat rental

Safe for Kids: Yes, the water is very shallow for a long way out

Food & Drinks: From the beachside bar

Turtles: Yes, although they don't nest here you do see them in the water

Seaweed: Seaweed grows naturally in some spots because it's so shallow, but it isn't dense and it's easy to avoid

Sand or Pebbles: The beach is sandy but narrow and can be quite rocky in places

Car Parking: There are car parking spaces near and on the road
