Temperature reached 26° the day we went and it was almost like having a private beach! Spent from 11am there, it was so peaceful and clean sand, only got busy with teenagers after 3pm. Walking distance from train station.

Walk down the steps to a soft sand beach, some umbrellas, protected little cove for a calm swim, but can get busy. Really close to lots of shops and McDonalds.
