“Pretty beach, but ice cold”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is a beautiful beach, but beware, it is ice cold. Even in the height of summer, the water temperature never really gets much warmer than about 14 degrees celcius, and the area is exposed to strong, cold winds directly in from the north sea. I visited in mid July and you could not even go on the beach without wearing a warm, wind resistant coat. Going in the water is out of the question unless you enjoy "ice bathing".

“beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Beautiful long beach with fine white sant situated at the end of the runway.
Peaceful, none of the tacky shops that you so often get adjacent to a beach.
Just plenty of clean and. Ther were a lot of kite surfers. There was a hotel at one end.

“beautiful but cold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Breathtaking beach, white fine sand, clear water, very clean. Mostly strong wind and quite cold so few people walking or running. Kite surfing paradise. there are no toilets, closest to the toilet in the hotel next to the beach. Unfortunately, there is no bus to the beach, the nearest stop is near the airport and you have to walk about 15 minutes.
