El Arenal Beach

El Arenal beach is localized very closed to the Pedasi village and it is easy to rich by the asphalted road in a good shape.

This beautiful white sand beach is one of the three beaches which decorated the coast of Pedasi. Its name is due to the enormous quantity of the white and fine send which is characteristic for the scenery.

The mar is usually calm and its bottom is sandy and shell. It is create ideal conditions for bathing, water sports and swimming. The beach is very extensive and large good enough for walking by the coast.
