The whole stretch is an absolutely gorgeous spot where the waves that softly lap up against a pebbled and sandy shoreline, partly cradled by the rocky cliffs that drop down to the sea, making the whole setting picture perfect.

There are many charming taverns, coffee shops, as well as entertainment facilities, several chapels, and an imposing and historical Gothic church.
