Nice beach

Lovely beach but very very busy, I would recommend arriving early in order to get parked. There are other beaches nearby also, that are not quite as busy.

Lovely long beach with a decking walk way with seats to take in the view. When the tide is out there are rock pools for crabbing so take a net for the kids. Lovely sunsets and a lagoon behind the dunes with turtles and flamingos and many more species of birds.

wanted somewhere different other than the standard 'Strip' area, excellent location/view for the villa, but long walk for supermarket, restaurants in walking distance are minimal and choice of food disappointing. Would not return to this area, although IF you drive and prepared to drive each night for meals etc then it would be fine, I choose not to drive on... More
