This is a fantastic beach. It's not very touristy, so you will often find yourself alone. You can walk easily up and down the beach to different venues.

Lovely sand and a great beach to walk on. Sadly it was unsafe to swim in during July. It may not be like this all year though.

Rough water so be careful but great sand and not a lot of people on the beach. Find a piece of shade and you'll be happy. Good, little food places close by (on the beach)
