Visited during a recent visit to the area with friends . Parked near the hotel and accessed via the boardwalk. Very busy beach at the weekend but still plenty of room . Public toilets were a bit grim though

Nice sand, beautiful and large, though no sunbeds. Don't know if that was because we were of season.
