A perfect day for family fun on a paradise beach
The 800-meter long Sakarun Bay offers enough space for sun-loving holidaymakers. This beautiful bay is lined with fragrant Mediterranean pine trees, which provide cool shade, especially in high summer.
Families with children will adore this heaven on earth; since the beach slopes are very gentle, the little ones can splash around safely and build sandcastles on the long white beach. Although Sakarun is located near open water, it is protected by a long bay, which offers protection, as well as pleasant temperatures for swimming and snorkelling.
Hint: Make stunning family pictures, complemented by the stunning background scenery!
Cocktails with a spectacular view
