  • Not very easy to access. It's not a very difficult hike, but the path is not very safe. Steps are crumbling and there is a very narrow part that you have to hold on to wooden sticks. If you can go...

  • Filthy. Local government should stop being a gold digger and attend to cleaning needs of this golden beach.

  • DO NOT JUST TRY TO SCRAMBLE DOWN TO THIS BEACH! There is a specific staircase, trying to get down your own way is impossible and dangerous - once you go down through the gap in the wooden walkway, go along to the right until you reach the green metal fence, and towards the cliff edge you will see a warning sign. The staircase is just to the right of the sign (see photos). Fantastic peaceful nudist beach for sunbathing and swimming, despite rocks and seaweed.
  • Note: rocky beach with possibly rough waves, and a rickety staircase to get down. NOT FOR KIDS. But very cute for adults! Sometimes people are nude here.
