We had a lovely day playing on the beach. It was unseasonably warm and the water was bliss. Great for beachcombing as well.

An enormous beach with extensive, beautiful views. Very stony, though! Most enjoyable walk along the promenade with interesting and picturesques houses and buildings opposite the beach.
