Sandwiched between two cliff outcrops, this beach is beautiful white, with lagoon quality blue sea, which has a shallow incline, so you can walk out quite far before you have to swim. Its a perfect place for a day of sun, sea and sand.

Walked through the tunnel from the adjoining beach to get here. Lovely place but no shade except for a small cave at one end. Lots of shells for the kids to discover. You can also reach this beach from the cliff top walk via the...More

The view from the sea is amazing. We took a boat trip and did all the caves and on the way we were introduced to the church and its history.

Once you get down to the beach via the steep road you're presented with a stunning beach. Enclosed on each side with tall rocks if you look carefully at the rocks to the right you'll see a cave. This is a walk through to the...More

This place was right down the street where we stayed. Walked here a few times. Water was extremely cold in July but the beach was beautiful. Highly recommended to see if in the area.
