Well maintained beach. Police patrols are regular - no alcohol allowed on the beach. Clean, family orientated. Usual stuff for rent if needed. Good walking beach. Lots of cafes and bars on promenade.

Nice walkway along the beach. Very safe. Some shops, restaurants, and small stores along the way. Worth the trip.

A very nice clean beach. It's maintained well and has nice sand and a walking path on the road. Safe and secure with a decent amount of life guards.
