The thing that pulls in the tourists, however, are the beaches. You can lay in the sun with the heat of the summer sands on your back, or cool off in the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Water sports are available as well, if you want to try snorkelling or diving. When the heat gets to be too much, there are shelters on the beach where you can sit in the shade with the breeze of the sea on your face and enjoy a nice lunch.
