excellent beach 3 miles long backs by huge dunes. A lot of free space or sun beds that are cheap to hire with a brolly. Good safe beach to swim in for children. Nudist and gay areas just all meld in to one with the other areas. All very civilised

Plenty of space for everyone. Some serious sun worshipers. Also nudist colony which was a surprise. Small beachside bars and more sophisticated restaurants just a little further along. Great climate in Sept.

The dunes are incredible, the swimming is great and the promenade offers great walking past the lighthouse. There are a number of good Mime artists - we saw a kissing couple, really well done. Loads of 6

Absolutely great shopping, some fine dinners, all while watching the sun set. I cannot describe how safe you feel walking along the boardwalk, def different from other shopping areas in the area.

This resort is lovely and local people are most welcoming willing to help visitors .As others have said be careful around the beach lighthouse and bus stop areas partcularly on the path to the camel rides in the sand dunes.watch for brightly well dressd people who approach trying to grab your hand.

This is what you get in front of you. The sightseeing is incredible with all this dunes and the ocean far ahead. I wouldn't recommend to families as most of the entire beaches are for nudists and gays. Overall nice and would definitely come back

The beach stretched for miles and was very safe. Able to spend time on the beach and also explore on flat ground.
