The beach was very clean when i was there in May. Not too many people around and we spotted a group of dolphins just offshore. I did enjoy my walk there.

Visited later afternoon. Great parking and security. Clean beache with 2.3km walk/ run promenade. Peaceful ambiance. Must do if you need to chill out and unwind. No hawers or vendirs. Free access. Lots of nice eating places close by. Highly recommended!
