  • Nice nice nice! Way down is not super easy, I advise the bus if not crowded. Water is clean and clear. Just a day to be spent in a wonderful nature!

  • Lovely beach with a restaurant. Parking at the top is free although the attendant told us we could tip anything we wanted! 2 euros each bus down. Really good system
  • Parking at the top for approximately 40 vehicles, with 2 disability parking places. Then, the bus down to the beach or a gentle walk downhill of approximately 10 minutes. The bus service starts in May (only weekends) and then is available daily until the end of September. Lovely beach bars serving great fish.
