This is an a mazing beach with a fantastic promenade which is about 5 miles long? You can have a brisk walk or a leisurely stroll and go as far as you like. It is on the level so no hills and great for all ages. You do have to watch for cyclists and rollerbladers

Lovely long sandy beach, warm inviting sea, in fact so warm it was like a bath. Superb seafront restaurants.

We were staying nearby and visited the beach to check it out. It was not busy on a bright September day but in high summer it would be full of people. Not many amenities nearby.

So very clean and well cared for and the sea is very shallow and calm for those swimmers who don't like to be in deep water

A nice beach with that 'grows' from 50m to 800m when the sea retracts -- this is very special and alows for long walks.
