Lovely long stretch of beach with bags of room for everyone. Enjoyed a couple of days walking along the beach whist our son had a ball jumping the waves. Beach was very clean and parking hereby with pay and display at a very cheap price.

I love this beach, you will need flip flops as it can be quite pebbly near the sea but the sand is as soft as silk and the sea is so clear. The sunrises and sunsets are a must. Its a beautiful beach on a...More
