We didn't have any expectation about the place. It might be one reason why we experienced the place such a positive way. Anyway, this seemed to be quite tranquil beach.

Parking at the harbour is an easy option, and a short walk in either direction will take you to the beach or into town. It's a really scenic place with the backdrop of hills and the town in the foreground. Pretty place. Atop the sea...More
