Leaving Lentas, a tiny roadside chapel's white stucco facade and warm terracotta roof is a striking contrast to the monstrous, stony mountain behind it. The blue fluidity of the sea softens the rough and rocky landscape.
Under the canopy of a palm tree, creamy white umbrellas and sun beds are perched seaside, making these front row seats to the sea, undeniably dreamy.
