We all loved this beach until we found faeces on the sand and then floating in the sea! This completely put us off, and from that moment on we never came back to this beach. Until that point we had enjoyed ourselves although the sea...More

This beach is kept very clean and has a bar which can be expensive for drinks. Not suitable for young children unless you don't mind the occasional nudist couple walking around.

The beach here is Easy to get too, clean and safe. The waves are good for a little body boarding if your children are confident in the water. Plenty of places to get a drink or snack or take your own picnic
