The small bay has fine golden sand and calm waters making it a great place for visitors of all ages whether you want to lay back and read a book, snorkel in the turquoise shallows or try out a Crazy UFO, an inflatable sofa where you just lean back and enjoy the ride whilst being whisked through the water trying your best not to fall off! And the fun does not stop there, you can experience parascending, jet skiing or a water bull where you must hold on for dear life as the boat twists and turning in the water!
