Amazing beach, Yes its a bit of a climb down but people with young toddlers were doing the hike with relative ease. Unless you have a real mobility issue this should not be a big problem. The beach itself was stunning the views were great....More

This beach is amazing, beautiful, secluded, but be ready to walk and hike a bit, as the access is not easy. Get your picnis bag and spend the day there. Blue water, a bit cold as we are in the Atlantic ocean. Worth the adventure

Intensive walk down: comfortable shoes recommended, though locals go on flip flops, carrying umbrellas, boxes, babies and grandparents... Nice beach with stones, so if you like to walk in the water, better keep something on your feet. Take along water and snacks if you plan...More
