Very nice beach with an extraordinary detail - warm water.
The refrigeration system of the power plant nearby the beach, provides waves of hot water on the beach's bay.
It's a very unusual sensation in the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean and make you feel like if you were in the Mediterranean sea.

The beach itself is not very nice. Not very well cleaned, scenic view is a thermoelectric plant... But the water has a nice temperature; especially in high tide you can feel some waves of lukewarm water coming from the plant cooling circuit.

It's a regular beach but with hot water from the electrical power plant near the beach. Don't worry it isn't a nuclear power plant :-)
