Beaches are mostly rocky, but there are also beaches with small pebbles, gravel, sand as well as concrete terrace beaches. You should bring sleeping pads or folding mattresses when going to a beach. Beaches are safe so you can leave your things on the shore. You should also have diving equipment, swimming shoes and sunscreen with you.
