Its not that crowded - For all these people that moan and complain that all the beaches are packed need to get real, you must all only surf in summer and in the weekends. Only a few weeks back me and 2 buddies scored the bar 3-4 and glass all to ourselves for about 3 hours. Sure packed and really local in the summer and in weekends- get there during the week in winter at dawn and she's all yours- But hey i like the bar to myself ! chur- stop the assholes marina development.
