This is a nice little beach, with lots of food and drink options around here...easy to reach from the main road...to the left there's a trail going over the cliffs, quite spectacular! more »
Lovely small beach. Be aware of tide times as it becomes a fairly narrow bit of sand by the time high tide comes. We arrived as it was going out and spent almost all day from about 10:30am till about 5pm (tide times change so check on Google). I recommend setting up as near the land as possible to maximise the time you get before you have to move. Great for swimming and sun bathing and exploring the rocks.
It is a cute little beach, with some places to eat nearby, but unfortunately a little rocky, which makes it somewhat dangerous and you need to look where you set your feet getting into the water. There are showers on the beach so you can clean the sand and salty water if you want. The parking is tricky, I would advise using the public parking lot which is a few meters away from the beach.
