This is our second time visiting this bay. Parking can be hard so consider public transport or a hotel with parking. So wonderful to see disabled beach access.

Very nice environment with a sandy beach. Water very calm and easy for kids. You can rent sun umbrellas and chairs to spend on the beach the full day.

Really cosy lagoon-like mini beach right in the middle of the town peninsula. Quite a crowd, but nevertheless lovely. If you don't plan to swim, just take a walk to imbibe the atmosphere...

It's breezy here. However, this please can be full of people in the summer. My advice is go early in the morning so that you can have the beach by yourself :) I did that ! haha ~
