This was so amazing!!! Great staff, amazing evening. I will recommend to buy seats at the top deck! It cost 8€, and there is only 20 spots, so you are guaranteed sitting space. The Dj on the beach was good, food was great and super nice to go grab drinks the whole evening. Really romantic with the lights on the beach and looking up at the stars! You should really buy this activity!

Brilliant experience, great memories made and fantastic photos (additional cost but well worth it) to take home. Would highly recommend!
