offering entertainment to all different ages and tastes. In
these resort you have umbrellas and chairs for rent, changing
facilities, refreshments area, volleyball courts and any sort of
facility you need to spend a whole day at the beach. At night

outdoor nightclub areas. Along the coast road there are some
