The curved beach here is rocky but good for walking, especially at low tide when tidal pools form in the volcanic rock. Sunsets are gorgeous, but despite its Blue Flag designation, this is not a great swimming beach. Be sure to take a stroll through the small village up from the beach, which is a memorable experience, with artistically decorated buildings and trees, and visit the contemporary-art museum. Outdoor activities, food, and drinks are all available through the beachside resort. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: sunset; walking.
