Rode bikes to the beach after seeing the lighthouse. Sat down on the sand and enjoyed a fairly empty beach on a Sunday evening. Saw numerous seals stick their heads out of the water to scan the beach. Very enjoyable.

This is a beautiful, quiet beach with rolling waves. Due east is Portugal! We stayed in a cottage a few hundred feet from the beach and could hear the waves crashing 24 hours a day. Lovely!

We always try going to this beach, as we rent here often. Plenty of seals to see, but full of sea weed.
