There really is nothing much here...unless you want to to kite surf! It seems very popular for that.

It was drizzly when we got to the beach, but we made ourselves comfortable under a pagoda. Once the drizzle passed we found a nice spot under an umbrella. Was lovely and quiet.

The beach was ok with many local families using it. But once again there was many stray hungry dogs.
