out of all of the beaches this was by far our favourite! it never got crowded and when the tide went out it opened up little lagoons and rock pools which kept us all occupied for hours!! only downside was the 133 steps we had to climb both ways!

Nice beach, but as with most beaches it was a lot of steps from the sidewalk down to the beaches. Refreshment stand and some caves along the beach.

Love coming here for a chill out as it is not always that busy. Seems like a locals beach, as not many tourists head so out of town. It has the surf hire and the breaks restaurant which is fantastic. Lovely views, definitely worth a visit

we visited this beach about half 4 in the evening and it was just beautiful, there was hardly anyone there safe for kids and the apartments that are available to hire on the beach look incredible. the restaurant although we didn't eat here looked well laid out and furnished so beautifully.

A beautiful beach, popular with surfers. Unfortunately, it's not easy to access! There's a perilously-steep (and narrow!) set of steps, or an equally-steep path. However, when you get down there, it's beautiful - lots of caves, clean sand and a conveniently-located cafe - great if you've just used up all your energy getting down! When the tide is out, you...
