  • Very nice beach and very well located. It is close to the bus station and the main food and meeting points. I was at the beginning of the summer and it was pretty empty, which I consider a good thing. There's no tents and it's very clean. Great for hiking and for those who seek peace

  • The beach of Punta mornings. Open, agitated and cold sea. But a great beach. Walk to the fingers and take a picture. Near the Gorlero restaurants, after the sea bath. In the afternoon, you change the beach and go to Mansa, with its calm waters that justify the name. I await the sunset of Mansa, in Oporto or in the paradors of all the beach
