We spent a couple of hours here on a July afternoon and virtually had the place to ourselves. It cost 4 Euro to park but well worth it. The beach stretches for quite a long way and has lovely golden sand and the waves crashing onto the shore. Lifeguards were on duty too. We spent time playing on the beach... More
