It is a nice spot, reached after a pleasant 20-25 minutes or so stroll through the woods. I was a bit surprised to see so many people on the beach in mid Sept to be honest. The water was lovely for a swim though, I...More

A few pointers... First of all it takes a 20 minute walk to get to the beach, we went there around 4 pm in the middle of October and it was still very crowded... The beach is quite small but the water is very nice...More
