The beach stretches long with clear azure blue water gently lapping the seashore. Its sand is golden and soft. With water temperatures ranging from 16ºC (60.8ºF) to 26ºC (80.6ºF) year round, it is a mecca for locals and visitors alike to escape the heat.
Swimming is obviously popular and the bay is outfitted for safety with shark prevention nets and floating platforms. During the summer, lifeguards are on duty.
