So beautiful that we came back to admire a sunset. I made some great pictures of a glowing sky! There are two busy restaurants on the beach.
Lovely spot with very friendly staff. Sorry, 'lovely spot' doesn't do it justice, its beautiful during the day and simply stunning at sunset. Good food with a nice balanced menu
Brilliant long sandy beach. Ideal for kids and families to play, unlike many of the smaller beach coves along the coast. Parking is close to the beach and boardwalks making it easy to walk along the dunes when looking for a spot
