Great for watching the Surfers. Clean beach with beach open showers. Small children’s play ground needs more though. Two minutes to shops.

Golden Riviera Beach Resort. Right on the beach front. 20m from shoos and restaurants and a Pub. Surf club beside you and patrolled beaches. Friendly accommodating staff.
