Gorgeous beach, but best for sunbathing, body surfing or boogie boarding. Ocean is quite rough unless you a strong swimmer. Onsite boogie board, chair and umbrella rentals, etc.

The waves are big and strong, good for body surfing, not for young kids - unless you keep them at water's edge. Sand is super soft. Chair get spiked early!

About half an hour by car or a couple of hours by bus with transfers and such. if you don't have a car you are probably better off arranging for a taxi with your hotel.
