Appx 2 miles long from the harbour to the cliffs. Many resteraunts & bars en route. Amazing beach. Life guards all the way along. The cliffs at the end are well worth the walk.

Anyone have any idea what the stacked stones signify? I'm presuming it's something like a cairn you would build after climbing a hill/mountain?
