We stayed at the Riviere Sands holiday park. Spotless clean caravan and site. Plenty of super amenities, and literally a few minutes walk to the beach, and WOW what a beach!! Miles of golden sand, sea safely monitored by lifeguards. Can't recommend highly enough.

There is a cafe just up the steps from the beach. Called the bluff with an amusement arcade and great food. Also an outdoor play area and a bar.
