Lined with a number of restaurants, Rock Beach draws crowds of locals and tourists who come here to enjoy an evening or a morning stroll along the bay. The beach stretches for 1.2 km (0.74 mi).

  • Really nice beach. Every evening they close the road near the beach for vehicles. And it's really nice these time. Lovely cold breeze every evening you can feel even when there is hot weather all day. I love it really great. You can literally fall in sleep there.
