Such a beautiful place let down by the lack of upkeep here. Untended, dry and overgrown green areas, peeling paints, broken pathways, poorly lit streets, unkempt sea front establishments. Pity.

I spent a week here in late November for golf and relaxation, and with great weather, great food and friends it was a lovely experience.

Smallish, reasonably clean beach flanked both ends by rocks. The big rock at the eastern end is painterly, composed of different strata - worth seeing at sunset, when it begins to glow. Enjoy.

Fabulous place with great people. People in the village are warm and welcoming. Beach is great and bars and restaurants are superb. Great place in low season

In October the beach was still very nice and the weather was really warm. It was quite easy to find sunbeds to rent.

Lagos is nearby and is steeped in history as the origins of the slave trade in Europe. There are boat trips from there too. Sayers is a short drive away and is historically the end of the known world!

Sorry I can't answer your query but might I suggest you speak with the lifeguards or watersport people whilst you are there. Any of the locals will do all they can to accommodate the tourists so please ask around.
