Go and have lunch or dinner for the sunset.

The best beach. Feel like the Carribean...A lot of parking . Fast food restaurant, and a top Michelin: the fish house.

A beautiful beach which is dog friendly all year round. It is clean and safe with good sand. Lifeguards on Patrol. There are cafes and shops on the beach selling clothes and food. There are also Restaurants and toilets. If you walk along the beach to the other side you can walk along the rocks and climb up some steps... More

Took a walk along the coast in the early evening. Lovely view and the sun set was beautiful! There's a hotel on top of the hill that is shaped like a boat.
