The beach itself is very nice - well maintained and clean. The sand is soft. The beachfront bars and restaurants make it a nice area to spend the evening too. There are also a number of beach chalets (during the Summer) which are really quaint.

Really nice and long beach with locals all along. Curious the fact that locals live just outside the sand. It would be really nice during summer

Broad beach where you can stroll along. Great kite surfing place. One of the few places where you can park free of charge just behind the dunes.

Free parking, although not enough on a good day. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Reasonably clean beach considering the amount of visitors. And plenty of shallow water for young children to play in. (Tide depending) Tip. More parking available near the pier

beach is excellent, with beautifull birds, possibility to sail , excellent to get rid of stress. The beach has many people cycling or walking, but enough space to calm down. I can recommend for couples, families etc.
