This is a beautiful sandy beach and the water is lovely. It is very busy but there was a nice friendly atmosphere. It's a short walk from the car park and bus stop (the buses are great but due to traffic they are often late)...More

The view is amazing. Parking is not that far from the beach, but needs change as pay machines don't accept card payments. As you reach the coast you are welcomed with a picturesque sight.
