A lovely dog beach with beautiful scenery. Shops near by so a nice place to spend the day. Sea is suitable for swimming. My one complaint is that people don't pick up their dog poop. Very annoying.

Nice beach. Friendly people, dog friendly. Clean. It is difficult to find parking though, but there is plenty. You just have to be patient.
