“Beautiful sands”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a beautiful clean sandy beach within easy reach of the shops and eateries. It is but a stone's throw from the rail station too, so very easy to get to. Well worth visiting.

“Clean with everything you need”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Soft sand, gently sloping waters - cafe, toilets, bar, shop. You never need to leave! Slightly away from the main harbour area but this is only a 10/15 min walk away.
