Awesome beach, clean, massive a great surf on the right day. Toilets available and well kept. Not sure how people with disabilities would get to them. Probably good for kite surfing if allowed, would have to check the rules.

The beach is very wide with beautiful golden sands. There are plenty of restaurants, take aways and surf shops to choose from plus parking close to the beach. Very clean and lots of toilets. Excellent.
