Lovely beach with a couple of cafes. Had a nice relaxing walk! There are a couple of shack type cafes right on the beach where you can enjoy a snack while watching the sea.

Lovely beach although it is a steep on the steps down to the beach and especially climbing back up. We did find an easier route without the steps after asking a local! Lovely weather for October.
