Beautiful sandy beach which appeared to be cleaned regularly. Gently shelving into unusually warm Atlantic water. Adequate supply of sunbeds and parasols although a little bit expensive. A few bars and watersports centre.

It's really really beautiful. Although, it can be quite dangerous: a family traveling with me got robbed there so take precautions. Still.. it's the best beach in FV.

There are toilets at the wind surfing centres. I have never used them but I am sure no one will stop you using them.
