Beautiful Sandy Beach

Appears to be a popular spot during high season, there were quite a few people but still plenty of sand to share!

A peaceful, cliff-backed beach, where gentle waves meet the sand. A bit of steps to get down to it, but once there, open up your backpack of goodies and you won't want to leave.
