This is one of the world's famous city beaches. A perfect escape in the middle of the busy city life. Calm waters, crystal clear, a true oasis...and it's all within reach.
As the beach is in a bay the water is calm and also incredibly clean and clear, so it's perfect for swimming. During weekends, especially on Sunday, it can get very crowded. For the locals who come here, it's not just a place for relaxing after a hard week, but also for socializing and hanging out with friends.
