We were here in August so the beach was very busy with Japanese holiday makers. However, the beach is big enough for you to find a spot. The beach is clean and the water is very clear. A great place for surfing or body boarding.

Very nice beach and not overcrowded (we were there a Saturday in June) not overdeveloped, so bring your own beach gear including shade. very good way of spending a day at the beach.

Beautiful. Excellent for surfing especially. In early November, there were 20 to 30 surfers most of the time, but no swimmers.
