Party beaches are found at the southern shoreline, offering a lot of services, watersports facilities, sun beds and umbrellas for rent during daytime and the biggest night clubs that host the wildest parties. They are often crowded and you can feel the party vibes even in the morning.
Lounge beaches are mainly on south and west sides of the island. Most of them are organized, offering everything you will need for a relaxing day on the beach.

Crazy parties on the beautiful sandy beaches
The night falls, the music gets louder, people start dancing right where they are: on the chairs, at the bar, on the sand.

Those who get really hot and tired from dancing take a break, dive into the sea and return for more dancing.
