Beautiful location. Lovely people and easy access to facilities. We went out of season so was tranquil. Not too busy.

I spent about 2.5 hours walking along here at low tide. The beach is littered with sea plant debris, and the sand is very rough under bare foot. Perhaps the worst beach ive walked along.

I have spent a very good sunny day with my friends, at night we played music with our blues band drinking some cold beer!

Needs a bit of TLC but very nice area. The Bars are very nice and welcoming. There is a very nice 8k running/biking area which is very popular.

This is a very nice and clean beach, with a cool atmosphere. There is a walking street parallel to the beach for pedestrians and bikes.

It was obviously winter when we visited so a lot of the concessions were closed. The beach itself is very long and wide and would imagine the water in the Summer would be very nice. There were some nice bars along the beach when we visited and we had a couple of drinks. Along the beach they have created cycle... More
