  • What a beautiful beach! We visited in August so we did not see the big waves but what we did see was just lovely. The water is crystal clear and the beach sandy is light and fluffy. Will visit...

  • Today is 31.3.2022 and the weather is lovely. Windy but not bad at all. Not many people. Some fishermen on the beach, few couples walking their dogs, two boats in the sea...just a pleasant walk with cooler wind but not as bad as we will get in England.
  • Perfect in winter to see huge waves like nowhere else. Wave breaks sounds like a storm and in sunny days almost every wave creates a rainbow. Perfect to watch from the cliff above. Hope to try the water in summer too!
