There is a biotope in the pine forest boarding the beach, where there are different species of protected plants and birds. Both the beach and the biotope are developed for ecotourism, financed by the Municipality and the European Union.
The beach is well-organized and offers many water sports, chairs, umbrellas, beach bars. The region around the beach is full of restaurants, taverns and hotel units.
Families should know
It can be very crowded with too many umbrellas and sun chairs, all too close to each other. It is recommended that you arrive early and avoid going there during the weekends
