Amazing experience on a summer evening. Easily the best beach walk we have ever experienced - anywhere. I am not a great swimmer but even I was tempted in despite not actually having the recommended clothing!!!

A beautiful, clean beach. Have been going here with 30 odd years since I was a child and now bringing my own children here. Best place in the world!
