Good beach, get there early though to grab a lounger. It's very clean with little rubbish on the sand. The little shack provides food and drink alcohol as well. It's never a disapointing day at balm ins, there's always something great to see ;-)

It's an excellent beach to visit. Not very far from the town center, within walking distance. The beach is great for a walk and nice during summer months.

This is the best beach as you can find shade or shelter from the wind. There is a small beach bar during high season.

Nice private beach with a comfortable crowd. It is a nude beach but is not awkward and is a place to hang out all day and enjoy the sunshine, paly paddle ball, and swim.

This beach is very crowded from July to September but is quiet and peaceful out of season. Just spent a few warm February days relaxing here!

So many positives. Only about five minutes walk north from the centre of town is this spectacular cove that is an official nudist beach. With its easy access along the sand and its rocky backdrop this is a delightful spot even on a windy day....More

Nice big beach with enough space to lay down, apart from the very busy week in October when it is full of Bears! Sheltered from the wind (normally) and a nice gentle slope to walk into the sea. Sometimes a few fish but beware jellyfish...More

Could a man wear a man thong on this beach? I have a swimsuit man thong and have wanted to wear it in public and I imagine a nudist beach being okay for that, but wanted to make sure.
