We love coming down to South Beach for a picnic on a sunny day but it would be advisable not to stick around after dark as the place has a feel about it once the sun goes down.

A lovely quiet beach for a walk. A little cool still for us to swim but lovely and clean, as well as amazing views as you walk. Close to town, although we had a car for our stay. Lots of free parking.

Nice beach not too busy. Access is by car. We were there on a really warm day - 28 deg C. Had a quick swim because the sea was still cold for us.
