The beach is covered with fine white sand and the sea is shallow and clear.
The best wind direction is when coming from northeast or southeast and as it creates small to medium waves in the sea, it is perfect for free style or speed kite-surfing. There is a designated area for kite launching and many more facilities such as a chill out area, training area, a board shop, umbrellas, a beach bar that organizes beach parties and lots of music. Note that the beach is ultra crowded during high season. Kite-surfers should be careful of bathers and jet skies.
