Lovely beach with big sand, big skies, big cliffs, big views and big rocks. There are a few surf breaks here and its popular with surf schools. There's a surfboard rental shack and a great cafe and bar selling seafood. Car park fills up.

Long and very beautiful beach walk at low tide. Very few other people there Doesn't look like there'll be much sand at high tide The cafes were closed when we visited but it is out of season Spectacular drive down winding road to the beach
