This is a clean beach with a light house at the beach. You are allowed to climb to top of the lighthouse, which offers better views of entire area. Not very crowded and peaceful place. Definitely worth visiting.

Better to visit at any time of the day. Even at night. Awesome view from the Light house. Climb and get to the other side of the beach on the right. Rock Climbing is fun. Tread carefully.
