Well worth a visit. He beach is clean and sandy and has a lovely feel. You can get a fairly decent cappuccino and yummy ice cream on the jetty and just relax and enjoy listening to the sea. I actually visit the beach every month as a family member lives there and always enjoy being there.

We spent the afternoon enjoying this lovely beach mid week in mid July. Not very busy but I imagine at weekends it is a different story. Lovely little cafes and restaurants add to the charm of this bay. Saw all generations enjoying themselves.
