We walked through this everyday and it was always packed. We cycled down the lake and found quieter and better beaches further down. However, if you want something near the town this is one of the only options.

A quiet grassy beach. Many locals come here. Good shower facilities but no changing rooms. Still we could use the washrooms to change. Pretty clean water. Good for a swim.
