I got to visit the 10 places out of the 20 places in this location as suggested by the guide during my 5 day tour here. I was not disappointed, we took a walk on the pebble beach and it was super fun walking bare footed. We also enjoyed swimming on the beach and also engage in other activities.
Summer with the hot temperatures and the striking sunlight was amazing. The pine trees at sandy beaches were awesome with the refreshments from the beach bar and awesome views from the beaches. Awesome guide
