the summer. Rocky beaches absolutely untouched with cliffs
vertically on the sea in one side and pebbles on the other
side. Clear clean water and quiet coves attract all those
seeking for some peace and privacy, loneliness and skinny
dipping. There are some pebbly beaches suitable for children,
but mostly it is rocky coastline with flat rocks which are
so inviting for sunning and daydreaming.
In southern parts of the cape swimmers have to be careful
because of strong sea currents, which can drive away careless
swimmers far from the coast. Caution is especially needed
during high/low tide change.

Bar, Robinson style place, offering refreshments and snacks.
Children will especially enjoy it here because of interesting
and unusual installations. Adventure guaranteed. Bar is

end of the cape very attractive, especially suitable for
more experienced surfers.
