Terrific if you want to get away from the usual tourist spots - great for families. Just like it was when I was a kid on scgool holidays.

I absolutely miss this beautiful beach! The beach is clean, the air is fresh, the sand is powdery soft. :)

We like the idea of a safe, clean, beautiful area, where we've been vising on and off for the past 20 years. We detest the lack of food choices. Deep fried, "pub style" food, chips and salad seem to be the norm.

This beach really has it all, its very family friendly and the waves aren't too big that you cant enjoy yourself. Great place for a romantic stroll in the afternoon as well.
