Great beach and would definitely visit again. Hired surf boards as beach is great for beginners and intermediaries. Unspoilt by tacky beach bars. Can get busy parking along prom. Would recommend using tent or parasol as quite exposed. Beach is well supervised by lifeguards.

Good and large sand beach with lifeguards, but a lot of people in the main season. Very good for surfing as well (even for beginners).
