  • Very nice beach, often good for surfing with surf school at the beach, too. I don't recommend surfing on a nice sunny day because sea is usually flat. Coffe and ice-cream available. Parking sometimes an issue.
  • Amazing Beech. Naturally a great weekend or day away in summer but just a beautiful in The winter but wrap up. I'll be back again in 22
