“great beach”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

this has to be one of the best unspoilt beaches i`ve seen and is the main reason i have returned here three times.If visited at the right time of day you can watch the fishing boats being winched up by tractor to the top of the beach to offload their catch(sardines i think)where you can see them being grilled at the rear of a beach cafe .I love walking for miles in either direction as the farther you go the more unspoilt it becomes,it is possible to leave the beach in a few places and walk through the dunes over purposely built walkways.Great for feeling relaxed in a natural enviroment.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

A nice long beach with lots of lovely bars and restaurants along it. There is also ample parking next to it with no roads to cross between the car park and the beach

“A beautiful beach”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I visited in January when it was very quiet - enjoyed some wonderful walks along the beach both ways. Imagine even in high season if you walk far enough you could find some peace and quiet on this wonderful golden sandy beach. Wonderful in the evening for watching the sunsets.
