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.

The very steep staircase down or a steep path as an alternative down, then back up again after, but the beach was a must once there.

Good car park. Toilets with soap and water. Plenty of area on the beach. Dog friendly. Not to far to walk from the car park. Surfe boards and snacks as well as drinks sold.
