Beautiful beach suitable for everyone especially families. Far end towards the breakwater is great for little kids. A great place to sit and watch the world in stunning surroundings.

Popular, beautiful, clean, easy to access, patrolled beach. We borrowed boogie boards from the hotel and loved catching the waves to shore. Lifeguards very helpful and supportive when one afternoon we were bitten by stingers.

Dogs are no longer allowed on the beach at all, even on leash, this has been a recent change by the local council. But the park along the beach and the walking track is on leash dog friendly and so are most of the cafes.
