The beach is gravel and our Taiwanese friend said the under tow is dangerous so we did not go. Large grassy area between the parking lot and the "beach" with street food stands and a few local crafts. I don't have any desire to return.

Beautiful views by the sea. Good place to sit and relax and just enjoy the breeze and if not too hot, it will be just wonderful.
