This "Blue Flag" beach has good parking, facilities, restaurant and umbrella-hire. There is also a Lifeguard on duty, and lots of space, so you don't fell like a sardine on the beach.

This restaurant has tremendous potential but until new Managers took over it was rather laid-back. Once, when we complained we were told we were fussy. Hopefully the food will improve. On a recent visit a Manager sat on a wall in front of us and smoked a cigarette. The food is average but from a discussion with the new Managers it is hoped things will improve. It is a lovely place for a drink and to watch the sun setting. It is certainly worth a visit.

Early morning serenity: the ocean on one side, the dunes, and the lagoon with its mirage under the rising sun.

Liked the space and the atmosphere and the dogs. Disliked nothing. We went there to swim and to run and walk In the morning.

This main beach gets very busy over peak season but is worth it if you're looking for big beaches, long walks, boogie boarding, kiting, great views, etc. With sand as soft as powder and the beautiful Overberg Mts at the back, this beach is magical. Good life-guard visibility as well. Clean showers/toilets etc too.
