The thing i like about this is there are three different beaches in close proximity so you can choose where to swim according to how rough the sea is or how many people are around. Nice beach - bit far though.

Isolated and wild, you'll love its savagery. Don't forget the sunblock. Black sand beach

Wonderful coastline, wild sea. Great for a walk but no shelter if you need it. Take your own shade. Not recommended for swimming,

Great beach, lots of room, but beware the black sand gets very hot in Summer. Good excuse for a swim too

Great beach - but treat with respect. sometimes have a strong rip. Lifeguards usually on duty - swim between the flags and you will be OK. Nice long beach - black sand (hence the need for footwear to get from the beach to your car without burning the sloes of your feet). In summer, a mobile cafe caravan springs up and believe me the food and coffee is EXCELLENT.
