Beautiful place, but the too long to go down. Stone stairs are not in good condition, hiking up about half hour and good feelings from the beach are disappearing. Water are cold because of the river,but there are some fish underwater.

Didn't think this beach was worth the pretty awful car journey involved. It took us around 40 mins to negotiate the rough, bouldery and occasionally precipitous road to get here.Hugely underwhelming when we saw it.Grey gravelly sand, quite small and narrow, not an attractive background...More
