Been there a few times but there’s never any parking spaces so I don’t wast my time going any more. It’s a pity really as the beach does look nice but speaking to locals there’s other places nearby just as nice with easier parking.

I walked the beach every morning just after dawn. Mostly dog walkers or joggers and most said good morning. I never felt unsafe even though i was on my own
