It's fairly bog standard food. The cafe/bar has the monopoly. That said, the beer is good and if you want a tasty snack and lovely sea view then it's the place to go. Value for money? Yes, but only on crusty rolls and light bites.

This beach is just fantastic. Miles n miles of golden sand and a lighthouse to boot. Be aware though that there are naturalists on the beach in case you are easily offended.

Big nice beach. If you like wind surfing is the place to be. There is a very well equipped wind surfing centre with friendly staff. No other facilities in the area in terms of food or drink, but you can grab a drink and a sandwich from the same centre.

Mile after mile of almost deserted golden beach. Great for kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing. Gently shelving and shallow. Lovely clean beach and sea.
