Nice clean beach with paths available to walk along. Goes through the small town at one end where the shops are located.

What a place to sit and have your morning fry-up, a view to die for, it doesn't get better. Breakfast was well priced and plentiful, try it for yourself 👍😀

I didn't see any signs saying they couldn't go on the beach. Also there were dogs there when I was there.
