This is a great beach to walk for pleasure or fitness. You can walk in either direction for a good distance. The walking is easier at lower tides but always doable. Not great for swimming as the surf is big and the risk of riptides....More

This beautiful, uncrowded beach is excellent for walking, sunbathing, and enjoying the clear view of the horizon. Very peaceful and uncrowded.

The look out to see the beaches is very accessable and the views of the beach and the board surfers is great. There are lots of rocks in the surfing area and I am sure that a lot of accidents occur here.

This is a large beach, both in length and distance to the water. Due to the heavy undertow it is not a beach for water activities but plenty of space to sit or play on the sand. The sand is course and golden unlike beaches...More

Walking down the beach by all the hotels was really nice, especially during the late afternoon before the sun went down, it was beautiful. All the Hotels are lit up and look very nice.
