No negatives for this beautiful and unspoilt beach. Won't be this way in the near future. Take plenty of water and shade. Have sensible footware, flip flops no good.

Gorgeous beach You can fish, sunbathe, quad bike, walk the sand dunes. There isn't places for shade so take hats and plenty of water. Worth a trip
