A nice beach, warm water, and a lifeguard, not crowded at all, watch out for the boiling hot sand. We had a walk along to the cliffs which was also nice, will go there again.

Love this beach, it is not crowded and is really relaxing. The town is built on a hill and it is advisable to park the car near to the beach. Don't leave the car in a street on the hill in town, you may never find it again, all the roads look the same and you may forever walk up and down hills searching.
