It’s been a while since I’ve visited the beachfront after the rejuvenation I was impressed. A diverse crowd however there was no sense of trouble and everyone was about having a good time. Excellent facilities I’m sure we will be back.

We visited and were impressed by the activities available for children. The promenades are wide with plenty of seating to just sit and watch. The view out to sea was amazing! Well worth a visit

What a beautiful beach. White sands stretching for miles, crystal clear waters and lots of facilities available nearby. This was my first visit to my daughter who lives a 5 minute walk away. That’s pleasing!!
