We came here for our fifth or sixth visit. It was a lovely sunny day and we swam in warm sea water. No one else of the beach at all.

The unmade road is passable with care in a normal standard car. On the way the wildlife is good and saw a "Little Owl" on the return journey. Walk around the bay which was lovely and went for a swim. We also walked to the far end to the chalk area and went onto the headland. We went in November... More

After a day out in the mountain villages trying to find the road to Lara, we finally made it to the beach. At the point we parked, it was a bit a of a hike down to the beach on duckboards and soft sand but boy oh boy was it worth it. This is exactly what two 50 something's came... More

An excellent place to visit if you have a four wheel vehicle. The beach has easy access from the car park. Visited in September and the sand was very clean and the water was very warm and calm. Turtle nests all over the beach. A hut where there was a display about the turtle life and an aquarium with some... More

This is a way off the beaten track down an unpacked road (that is accessible in a normal car). The scenery is simply stunning, both at the beach and on the way. This is not a beach to lounge around on, no parasols or loungers are allowed to protect the habitats "purpose" as a turtle hatchery.

Nice sand beach, but I expected something "more incredible" and more wild. Nice views during driving on dirt road, even better than beach :) Lack of turtles in October :)

Have been once before but never reviewed. We called towards the end of our quad bike safari. Overlooks the beach. I had a whole sea bream done over charcoal, great. Staff are friendly. Good value for money and a great place to slake the dust with a cool lager

Although protected (no sun loungers or parasols allowed) you can spend a couple of hours here swimming in the warm sea. The beach shelves quite gently so is quite safe for swimming.

This place was astounding. The fact that it is almost untouched by human nature is what makes it so amazing. Definetly should visit.
