Very nice beach for relaxing or family fun. Fabulous sand and good shallow edge for paddling. Didn't go out in the sea so cannot say if good for swimming

There is a small market beside the fish market on Sundays. There is also a market at Place Dalton on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. The fish market is open every day. Hope that helps.
