What a beach. When the tide is out it stretches for miles. Crystal clear water and beautiful white sands. Perfect place for a walk. What a bonus to find it had spotless toilet facilities.

We stayed last night and it wasn't a problem. There is a hill to the left which maybe makes it a little sheltered.
