This beach is well worth the walk down the long staircase. The path is modern and well maintained and so safe to use. The beach is beautiful and when we were there lifeguards in attendance. Visit if in the area.

This is a wonderful quiet beach with fabulously clean sand. The sea was quite rough when we visited but still fine for paddling. It’s also sheltered so can get quite warm in March. There is an amazing selection of really large sea shells too. It’s...More

Cosy beach , large, great view, not crowded. Many seashells. The stairs to get there have been renewed so it is good to get there. Good to swim. Lifeguards are there too.

This is one of a few coved beach areas along the coastline, beautiful white sand and blue seas. Sun, sea and sand to be enjoyed all day, you can pick your spot and just drop your towel.
