Looks like it will be horrid but actually lovely. Big beach round corner and main rock is lovely to jump off and swim from. Very clear water and pretty clean beach despite tourists. Good little day trip.

This was one place I really wanted to visit,it was stunning ,and the sea was cooler here ,the views were terrific. No sand to speak of though ,very rocky,no sunbeds or shelter,so lying on rocks and stones,and rocky going into the sea , it didn't bother me but might not be for everyone,especially if you want to spend some time...

Not worth the hike up hill, a hole in a hill mozzie ridden can't even dip you toes in it. Would not recommend it

Although the beach is full of pebbles, the sea is glorious and the rock formations are outstanding. Well worth stopping the car and going along.

A nice view but far away from the coach, I imagine it would be nice to have a swim near it and go on the beach
