This is a beautiful beach with miles of golden sands, set against a wild landscape. There are loads of kite surfers and windsurfers which are great to watch.

This is one of the best beaches we have been too, I was about a mile south from the hotels, no bars, just kite surfers, dunes and sand banks.

This is a very fun place to visit - we actually went there twice during our holidays. The lagoons during low tide are great for smaller kids and the area is very nice even for only having a walk. Kitesurfing and other activities were available.
