This beach is a short side trip off the A8 motorway and is worth a stop even if you haven't come at low tide. During the summer access is limited and must be booked in advance but we were able to roll right in and...More

What a beautiful place to visit. The coastline is so rugged with loads of old buildings and abandoned work stations. A fabulous walk goes along the coast. Totally worth a visit or short stay. Lots of lovely looking villages around.

I'm glad I saw them. I built it up in my mind. It would have been better if I hadn't known about them but came across them myself. You are not allowed to view them from the top of the cliff. You don't have to...More

The nature is wonderful and in this beach it shows all its power. We stopped there traveling around by motorhome. We spend the night at the parking lot with, around, 20 more motorhomes and we did not have any troubles. In the morning we just...More

I actually think this is a bit over-hyped. It is a lovely, clean, big beach, and the rock formations are interesting and covered with all sorts of marine life. Worth an hour's visit.

Visited about a month ago at sunset and place did not disappoint. Impressive beach and fantastic landscape from the rocks. I think this is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. It is important to know, only 5,000 people are allowed to visit...More
