Huge natural place, really rocky, with a few beaches and great trails, even for kids (with some parental help). Beaches were not so lovely like in other comments but that's the price for spending holidays in August. There were unfriendly gusty waves, unappealing, and small...More

We visited in October 2016 before the fire but I can say that the weather was beautiful and waters were Great. Also not as crowded as mid summer.
