Always beautiful Lovely wind which means you never feel too hot. Steep path down(and back up!) which can be a struggle in the heat when carrying everything. However it is well worth the effort.

This is a beach mainly for surfers. The sea was rough, with high waves. However we spent a few hours resting and watching the numerous surfers ply their skills.
