“What a beautiful beach with great sand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

A beautiful beach with white sand. Very relaxing to play in the water or just hang on the sand. There is walking trails that go for miles north or south. And always a great pier to visit for food.

“Pebbly beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

This beach is certainly not golden sand but more like grit and pebbles. However it is very pretty on a sunny day and well worth a visit. Just sitting watching the waves and surfers is very relaxing. There are toilet facilities but they were not a pleasant experience!!

“Busy Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Don't underestimate those waves as my Hamstring went on the first wave.

The current can be strong

The townsfolk are a very proud folk and keep the beach area spick and span.
