  • Beautiful beach, waves can be pretty big though
  • I have been there and it is beautiful. I took some surf lesson and it is very good if you start learning surfing because the waves are not that big so it is good to start surfing. Also the water is amazing: clear and beautiful. Other activities are offered too. Everything is so laid-back there and you can just enjoy and destress
