Amazing place. The sea movement was mesmerising. I could have sat and watched it all day. Lovely clear water and reasonably priced gift shop.

We've been to this beach many times. It's an unusual beach and good for walking and watching the world go by. I recommend a trip to the visitor centre and their activities.
