The colors of the water change according to the currents that move around the white calcic sediments of the mountain. I recommend to check the weather before going since it can be a dangerous when there are waves. Note that some rocks on the hill are unstable and can suddenly fall hence do not sit right under the cliff and if visiting the cave at the far left side of the beach pay extra attention.”
“Beautiful green bay with white pebbles and deep blue waters, great for water sports, snorkelling and fishing. It has organized parking space and 2-3 beach bars that offer all day snacks, drinks and food. Sunbeds are available at additional cost”
“From a natural balcony, which resulted from the collapse of the cave roof, you can survey an area of approx. 100 m² with rare stalactites and stalagmites. The hall is about 40 km long with excellent acoustics and sometimes concerts are here organised.”
