The beach is as the name implies - full of pebbles. Not great for bare feet. It is best to wear protective footwear when walking here. There isn't much to see and do at this beach. There are other beaches nice than this one.

Beautiful pebble beach, clean and so peaceful. Anyone could visit here, go swimming with family and friends with cheap cottages or rather stay here for few days. There's a beach Hotel near the area, don't worry :)
