“Unspoilt and uncrowded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Lovely beach with easy access, good parking and a really nice beach restaurant. Worth a visit just to have miles of beach to yourself.

“Fun in the Sun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

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.

“WONDERFUL BEACHSIDE POSITION”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

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.

“Serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

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