With every flood, an exchange with fresh sea water without chemicals takes place and the stay is safe even for inexperienced swimmers and children. The bottom of the pool is covered with a thin layer of sand. You can discover small shoals of fish while snorkeling. There you can sunbathe and enjoy the peace and quiet with a good book. Meanwhile, the children can play in the sand or go looking for small crabs in the crevices with a bucket and landing net or catch small fish.
