We had a great afternoon on the beach, the water is a little bit cold but the chilling on the sand was good enough.

Known for its coloured beach huts, it offers much more. The restaurants surrounding the beach are very good and plentiful. Ablution facilities on the beach is clean and neat, although water restrictions caused showers to be closed. Great surfing with training companies for the novices.
