This beach is perfect thanks to its great beauty for being a corner of totally golden sand, where there are no services or restaurants, and you will stay in the middle of nature’s peace.
It is hidden behind a cliff and surrounded by vegetation, which makes it a perfect place for the practice of nudism. Our recommendation is that you arrive by car, and then you will have to walk about 15 minutes on foot to reach it.
