Good beach, get there early though to grab a lounger. It's very clean with little rubbish on the sand. The little shack provides food and drink alcohol as well. It's never a disapointing day at balm ins, there's always something great to see ;-)

Nice private beach with a comfortable crowd. It is a nude beach but is not awkward and is a place to hang out all day and enjoy the sunshine, paly paddle ball, and swim.

Nice big beach with enough space to lay down, apart from the very busy week in October when it is full of Bears! Sheltered from the wind (normally) and a nice gentle slope to walk into the sea. Sometimes a few fish but beware jellyfish...More
