Nice, clean pretty beach. Plenty of room due to the time of year and it is easy to walk from beach to beach. Pleasant time.

Lots of bars and restaurants within easy reach of the beach. A great place to people watch. Also there are guys creating sand sculptures. There are some really good clothes shops in the old town too.

Refurbished beach area; car park gone and traffic calmed. Great beach, sun loungers, pedallos, para-glide, waves and clean(ish) sand. Near souvenir shops and some great restaurants. Huge paved area hosts model racing cars, in-line skaters, and Seqways. Just Great.
