Amazing beach, water crystal clear, was able to park quite close. No facilities but water lovely & warm. Can imagine in the height of summer it would be mobbed, but it was deserted when we visited!

Really busy and lots of sea weed but lovely sea further out. Had to walk for quite a while to get a spot. Easy to park and then jump in mini bus shuttle.
