An excellent beach with a bar and restaurant within easy walking distance. Crystal clear water with lots of sand and sun. Go there to forget about it all and soak in the sun.

Well, you can park at Strand Street, or take your chances parking on the side streets. The fort only allows 2 hour parking. We rented a car for 3 days, 2 nights of trying to find parking was a hazzle.
