This is a very nice and long beach. It can be quite windy, but was still comfortable in shorts and a tshirt. I didn't find the beach to be as dirty as other people noted. One thing I will say is to avoid the beach if you can in August. It was absolutely packed with locals trying to escape the inland heat. So if you want some seclusion then avoid it around the peak of summer. You can still get away from the crowds by walking to the very end.
