It was our first trip to Rock and I couldn’t believe how clean the beach was. The water looked inviting but was still very cold to swim in.

We stayed in a campsite a couple of miles from Rock. We explored towns & villages then went to the beach each afternoon with our dogs. This beach is beautiful, very long and plenty of pace for everyone.

This could be a nice place but it is overrun with too many people trying to do the same thing. If driving there is not enough car parking. If walking there are too many crowds. And restaurants are expensive.
