The sand is clean and extensive. The beach is divided into two by a natural channel.
In the summer the beach can be crowded as there are facilities to cater for different tastes - roundabouts for children, Bingo for the older generation, ice cream etc. Competitions and sand sculpture.
One warning, there can be jellyfish.
