Very quite little village. More cafes than restaurants. On the plus side beautiful beach and very friendly people (most of them, a couple who should not be in the hospitality but hey you get that everywhere)

Family holiday here. Had the best time. It was friendly, easy and affordable. We stayed in st James appartments. So it was a 5 min walk to the shops and 10 mins to the beautiful beach. Restaurants and bars were great.

Worth seeing if you have nothing else to do or want to just sunbake. It's a long stretch of rather featureless promenade except for the sea breaks. The sand, rocks and seaweed give it a dated look.
