The sand here is so pale it's often referred to in the guide books as being 'silvery', and the water lapping over it shows up a definite turquoise in comparison – like very nice jewellery. The three kilometres of beach tempt kayakers and sailors, as well as divers and snorkellers – so the views must be beautiful on top of the water as well as underneath. The mountains are only a short drive back from the shore which makes for a particularly lovely view from the ocean.

Beach volleyball players and windsurfers do tend to break up the view a little though.
