Go here every year clean & tidy with WC facilities worth paying the 10euros for sunbeds & wicker umbrella with small table. Usually a nice cool breeze of the sea.

The beach is clean. Has goal posts at one end and saw people enjoying playing there. Has keep fit equipment area and a nice garden area with shrubbery and trees. The boardwalks are getting a bit worn in places but otherwise seems a safe beach.
