Went in August, but changed to the river side beach due to rocky beach entrance & dirty water bringing all type of sea weeds on the beach. Got to be wearing shoes when entering the water due to the rocks.

This beach is great but it has very bad access by car! The road cannot be done properly because the beach is on a protected area! Anyway, the beach is great and has a lot of parking places!

The water is cold. If not that it will be the perfect place. Nice sand and a very calm place to relax.

If you walk north you'll find the nude beach (in the second cove). It's very peaceful and relaxing. The only downside is the dirt track getting to the beach as it's bumpy on your car.
