Absolutely beautiful beach with amazing water - perfect for swimming and young children. Bring an umbrella or find shade under a tree. Hike 15-20 min to the rock cut-out or hike up to the lighthouse. This beach is a must-see if you are anywhere near...More

Beautiful, somewhat isolated beach but next to the lighthouse and cliffs that are must see. No shops so bring all your food and drinks. Beautiful, peaceful place.

Not sure the time it closes. It's a public beach, you don't pay to enter beach or light house. No staff on duty.
