Cleanest city beach ever seen, impressed with maintenance. Rare that a major metropolitan modern city has such nice beaches and a very clean sea with good underwater visibility. Yes, there are crowds, but there is mostly a respectful and peaceful atmosphere. Also a choice of beachwear, topless is optional and beaches to the north are optionally nudist.
