Really good fun. Getting on and off was a little hairy but very relaxing walking through the dunes. They take a photo which you can buy. The beach itself is lovely, but be ready for quite a long walk from the bus stop.

Very impressive sand dunes stretching for miles.Well worth a visit but very hard to walk in especially if one is getting in on years.Enjoyed our afternoon visit there.

good beach and a real eye opener, naked people everywhere, be careful walking through the sand dunes as you'll probably find naked guys playing with themselves,

Huge space. Amazing sands and dunes something for everyone. Families. Nudest. Couples. Very relaxed environment. Nudist and none nudist all mixed in but works. No one worries or cares.

Easy review. It's a mini desert next to the ocean and a must see. The sand is hot "derrr" so wear decent trainers or sandals. We got the bus to he nearby shopping centre. 10 min walk

Visited the beach on our second day here, the dunes are absolutely stunning, we walked for what seemed to be miles and never got fed up of the spectacular views.

It was warm and a joy to swim and splash about like a kid in the surf and I'm 60!
