Cosy beach with miles of sandy beaches and guarded umbrella areas. The rocky outcrop that borders the beach look amazing with stunning hues of gold and red. The ocean is cool but extremely refreshing on a hot day. Toilet facilities are available up the stairs as you leave the beach near the bar.

Lovely beach. Expensive to hire sun loungers for the day. Long walk down rickety wooden steps. Nothing other than a small cafe at the top of the steps

Miles of golden sand, surrounded by huge waves of the Atlantic Ocean and rugged cliffs. Stunning sunsets and perfect for romantic strolls in the evening. EPIC Sana and Pine Cliffs are the local hotels

A beautiful beach you have to walk over a bridge which can be a bit difficult for wheelchairs users but there's a ramp at both ends. Wheelchair friendly. Toilets for disabled and life guards more than happy to assist you into water with beach wheelchair

Beautiful flat sandy beach. However there is a steep hill to negotiate before you reach the beach. The cliffs behind the beach are stunning. Watersports available in the summer months.
